Speaker and author to present Oct. 21 and 22

Speaker and author Allan Johnson will give two public presentations on campus Oct. 21 and 22.

The author of four books, Johnson has worked on issues of social inequality since receiving his Ph.D. from the University of Michigan. He teaches sociology at Hartford College for Women and is a frequent speaker on university campuses.

Several departments at WSU, including Comparative Ethnic Studies, Sociology, and Speech and Hearing Sciences, are utilizing his book, “Privilege, Power and Difference,” in class.

“He brings an extraordinary level of expertise in understanding oppression, privilege and transformation, which we will use in thinking about making WSU a more inclusive, just and welcoming institution,” says Melynda Huskey, director of WSU’s Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual and Allies Program and coordinator for Johnson’s visit.

Johnson’s presentations will be: “Male Privilege and Violence,” 7-9 p.m., Tuesday, Oct. 21, CUE 203, followed by a book signing; and “Race and White Privilege,” noon-2 p.m., Wednesday, Oct. 22, CUB Cascade Rooms.

Johnson’s visit is sponsored by Human Relations and Diversity, YWCA of WSU and the Women’s Resource Center.
