“Conversations in Leadership” Series at the Powell Center–R. L’Heureux Lewis
I’m happy to announce the second installment of a new series of discussions that I’m hosting this spring at the Colin L. Powell Center for Leadership and Service at The City College of New York. The program, “Conversations in Leadership,” brings together experienced policymakers and opinion leaders from all levels of politics—local, state, national and federal—to discuss their substantive areas of expertise, their experiences working in and studying the public sector, and the lessons they have learned about effective leadership with the City College community.
On Tuesday, March 20, the Center will welcome R. L’Heureux Lewis, assistant professor of sociology and Black studies at the City College of New York, on March 20. Dr. Lewis’ research concentrates on issues of educational inequality, the role of race in contemporary society, and gender equity. His commentary and analysis have been featured in national and regional media outlets such as the Detroit Free Press, National Public Radio, Diversity in Higher Education, Fox News, Keep Hope Alive Radio with Jesse Jackson, Ebony.com, TheGrio.com, TheRoot.com, and US World News Report. In addition, Dr. Lewis maintains an award-winning weblog, Uptown Notes. He holds a Ph.D. in public policy and sociology from the University of Michigan and a B.A. in sociology from Morehouse College.
RSVPs are required. If you are interested in attending, please make sure to register here. Hope to see you all there!
