About this event
“Today’s Social and Political Issues”
New York Times columnist Charles Blow will come to UC San Diego Park & Market on Monday, November 6 at The Guggenheim Theatre. Blow will speak to “Today’s Social and Political Issues” as part of the Helen Edison Lecture Series.
Known for his fearless brand of political and social commentary, Blow has become a familiar face on TV and a frequent target for conservative critics. His column typically features charts, but it’s mainly his words, written and spoken, that continue to spark conversation and debate about social and political issues of the day. As a speaker, Blow fearlessly tackles contentious issues, such as racism, childhood obesity, life in large cities, acceptance of gays in society, and the current administration. Blow has recently spoken on topics such as: income inequality, xenophobia, teen pregnancy, education and the relationship between journalism and justice.
