Catered Community Dinner & Lecture

A Boston Globe contributing columnist a public radio producer and a network news guest, Robin Washington’s career has touched the lives of millions. His stories have changed laws and sparked numerous reforms, while bringing recognition to ordinary people doing extraordinary things. His specialties — work that has earned some of the highest awards in journalism — are transportation, the Civil Rights Movement, the Catholic Church sexual abuse scandal, the diversity of Judaism, breaking news and investigative reporting. Some of those stories will make you cry or laugh out loud. All are about the humanity behind them.

Born in Chicago in a family of black and Jewish civil rights activists,
Washington participated in sit-ins and marches beginning when he was a toddler, events now documented as history-changing but that he recalls fondly as “family outings.”

As a Jew of color and a journalist, Robin Washington will speak about racial diversity, white privilege and Jews of color.
