Heather McGhee ~ Virtual Author Event Hosted By UCSB Arts & Lectures


I love attending author events and with the ongoing pandemic, it's been fabulous attending live virtual author events!!

I enjoyed hearing Heather McGhee speak virtually through UCSB Art & Lecture's Race to Justice series on Tuesday, May 4, 2021 from 5 to 6pm. Ms. McGhee is the author of The Sum of Us: What Racism Costs Everyone and How We Can Prosper Together and she is also an advocate and public policy expert.

Heather McGhee conversed with UCSB professor and director of the Center for Black Studies Research, Dr. Sharon Tettegah. I enjoyed hearing how racism effects us all and why we need to work together for the greater good of the nation as a whole to end racism. 

Learning more about Heather McGhee's background and life was also very fascinating and enlightening. I am thankful to have attended such an important and timely topic.


  1. Virtual events have really come into their own in the past year and thank goodness for that!

    1. I am so happy/grateful for virtual author events due not only to the pandemic situation, but also because one may not live near where a live author event is located, whether there is a pandemic or not.
