Giancarlo Esposito to Speak at

Black History Cultural Dinner



University Housing Services is pleased to welcome veteran actor and social activist Giancarlo Esposito as the featured speaker for the Black History Cultural Dinner. Esposito is often recognized for his efforts in giving back to the student community.During his visit, Esposito will discuss the collegiate student’s main nonacademic responsibility: to get to know people who are different than you.

Attendees will learn more about why the “theater of college” as a microcosm of the world at large is a unique and valuable opportunity to learn about yourself, gain compassion for others, and make connections that make a difference. Esposito will also explain the parallels between Spike Lee’s Do the Right Thing which debuted in 1989 and the racial tensions that still exist today almost 27 years later.
