We had the opportunity to see prominent anti-racist writer and educator Tim Wise speak at the Wentworth Institute of Technology on February 7th, 2013. The diversity group I Am Wentworth sponsored the event, which was open to the public. Mr. Wise addressed the student body, answered questions, and then signed copies of his new book, Dear White America: Letter to a New Minority.
