Zoom Lecture Wednesday, Sept. 9
6 p.m. CST

A lecture by Houston native and acclaimed writer Bryan Washington

Sponsored by the Center for African and African American Studies, BRIDGE (Building Research on Inequality and Diversity to Grow Equity), the Task Force on Slavery, Segregation and Racial Injustice, and the Department of English, this online event is open to the Rice community and the public.


In this lecture, Bryan Washington — the newly appointed Scholar in Residence for Racial Justice at Rice and the George Guion Williams Writer in Residence in the Department of English — will talk about his experience writing essays and nonfiction at the intersections of race and setting in a dynamic cultural climate, with an emphasis on the pull writers' geography exerts on their work. Following his remarks, Washington will be open to questions from the audience.
