Writer-Activist Alix Jules Presents Program on Race and Racism in America

Talks/Lectures
Myrtle Beach Humanists & Freethinkers will host nationally recognized writer, activist, social commentator, Alix Jules for the Myrtle Beach stop on his southeast coast speaking tour. Jules’ program, “The Humanist Pat Down: Defending Race in the Face of Reason,” will be held at the Waccamaw Library in the Debordieu Meeting Room, Friday, May 26. Meet and greet at 6 pm and the talk starts at 7 pm. Jules will discuss Race and Racism in America, including racial tones in culture, religion, and their effect on US politics. He will review some of the current stats and prevailing theories that continue to shape racial dynamics, while examining the concept of privilege in the Era of Trump. Jules will also take a candid, but humorous look at why even Humanists struggle with finding proper footing when discussing these topics. In addition he’ll also discuss the backlash against PC culture and why words like “diversity” have become a pejorative.
