Author and ILA Board Member Max Klau will provide an overview of his new book, entitled Race and Social Change: A Quest, A Study, A Call to Action. The book desribes Klau's personal quest to understand matters of race and social change, and explains how that quest led to Harvard University and a surprising opportunity to study a provocative educational exercise. Those years of rigorous empirical insight illuminate matters of race and social change in ways that integrate the intimately personal and the large-scale and systemic. The book ends with both a personal and national call to action to promote greater racial understanding and equality at a moment of painful violence and conflict in our nation.
