"Biased": An Author Talk by Jennifer Eberhardt

When: Tuesday, August 27 2019 @ 07:30 pm - - 09:00pm
Event Type:
Contact: Steven Ketchpel
Where: FCCPA Social Hall
1985 Louis Road
Palo Alto, CA 94303
Description: Stanford professor of Social Psychology Jennifer Eberhardt will discuss her new book, "Biased: Uncovering the Hidden Prejudice That Shapes What We See, Think, and Do."

Combining academic studies with personal stories, Eberhardt makes a compelling case for how racial bias impacts decisions and systems at the personal and societal level. Operating sometimes subconsciously in discrimination in criminal justice, housing, or employment, bias can also flare into racially motivated violence, such as Charlottesville in August 2017.

Praise for the book comes from Bryan Stevenson, Trevor Noah, Kamala Harris, Michelle Alexander, and critics from Forbes and the New York Times. Prof. Eberhardt is also a MacArthur Grant winner.

The book will be available for purchase and signing.

The Palo Alto Community Gospel Choir will also perform.

This free talk is sponsored by the Peace and Justice Task Force of First Congregational Church of Palo Alto.
