Spokane Community College and Spokane Falls Community College are opening up an amazing opportunity for the region by bringing Seattle-based author Ijeoma Oluo to town (virtually) as its Martin Luther King Jr. speaker for 2021. The author of New York Times best-seller So You Want To Talk About Race and the new Mediocre: The Dangerous Legacy of White Male America has had essays appear in the New York Times and Washington Post, and her ideas on race, feminism, social justice and community are sure to be both inspiring and thought-provoking. Oluo’s appearance will stream free for the entire community, and marks the launch of a series of “Diversity Dialogues: Conversations on Race and Equity” coming up through the spring and presented by SCC’s Hagan Center for the Humanities.
