In Letters to My White Male Friends, Dax-Devlon Ross, J.D. speaks directly to the millions of middle-aged white men who are suddenly awakening to race and racism. Through his compelling personal story, an examination of what it means to be the first generation raised after the civil rights movement, and actionable steps toward repairing harm and taking just action, this book is a vital contribution to the literature on race in America.
Mr. Ross is the author of seven books and his journalism has been featured in TIME, The Guardian, The New York Times, Virginia Quarterly Review, The Washington Post Magazine, and other national publications. He won the National Association of Black Journalists’ Investigative Reporting Award for his coverage of jury exclusion in North Carolina courts and is currently a reporting fellow at Type Investigations. A New York City teaching fellow turned non-profit executive, Mr. Ross is now a principal at the social impact consultancies, Dax-Dev and Third Settlements, both of which focus on designing disruptive strategies to generate equity in workplaces and education spaces alike.
Mr. Ross will be in conversation with Marcus Campbell, Ed.D., Assistant Superintendent/Principal at Evanston Township High School D202 in Evanston, IL.
This event will be recorded and available later on the FAN website and our YouTube channel.
