Rubloff Auditorium
Tickets required

Jeff Chang is one of the leading voices exploring the complexities of race, hip-hop, youth culture, and the arts. His 2014 book Who We Be: The Colorization of America makes the case that in our post–civil rights movement culture drives how Americans see race. Chang tracks critical changes in art, music, and advertising, from the iconic 1971 Coca Cola ad “I’d like to teach the world to sing” to the rhetoric of a “post-racial” world after the election of Barack Obama. Chang comes to CHF to discuss the power and limits of contemporary multiculturalism and his current work around culture and social change.
