Were You Offended?
You may recall a
scene out of the 1960's in which a white woman kicks a young black boy out of
a pool and hits him in the face. While many of us like to think prejudice is part of our nation's past, this same thing happened just last week in America.
The second lecture in
OSHER@Dartmouth's Summer Lecture Series focuses on race relations in our country. Dr. Damon
Tweedy will address the topic Black Man in a White Coat on Thursday, July 19th, from 9:00 - 11:30 AM at Spaulding
Auditorium, Hopkins Center, in Hanover, N.H.
Damon Tweedy, M.D., is Professor of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at Duke University and author
of Black Man in a White Coat: A Doctor's Reflections On Race And
Medicine. His book reached the NY Times bestseller list in 2015
and Time Magazine rated it among the "Top Ten Non-Fiction Books of
2015". He will pose the question: Is being black bad for your health? Dr.
Tweedy will be available to sign copies of his book during intermission.
