Join us for the fall 2015 Catherine McLaughling Hakim Lecture with guest Callie Crossley speaking on “Narratives and Hashtags: The Media’s Impact on Social Justice.”
Crossley is host of WGBH’s Under the Radar with Callie Crossley, and her commentaries air on Mondays during the station’s Morning Edition. She is also a public speaker, media commentator and a regular contributor on NPR, CNN, Fox 25 Boston and PBS NewsHour. Crossley was a producer for the documentary series Eyes On the Prize: America’s Civil Rights Years, which earned her an Oscar nomination, a national Emmy, and major film and journalism awards, including the Gold Baton of the duPont-Columbia Awards.
This annual lecture series was established by Dr. Raymond Hakim in honor of his late wife, Catherine McLaughlin Hakim ’70 and sponsored by the Department of Sociology. Lectures focus on issues of sociology, social justice and public policy on the local, national and international levels.
