The Masterclass in Activism is a widely advertised event series in which the center's director is in conversation with noted activists and thought leaders who have made significant marks on the policy landscape. The center features two speakers each year, one per semester, to participate in the masterclass series. This past year, Dr. Johnnetta Betsch Cole and Professor Dorothy Roberts joined us for our inaugural Masterclass in Activism events.
