The Prep community welcomes local author Ijeoma Oluo to our "virtual" campus to engage in a conversation about race. 

In her New York Times bestseller, So You Want to Talk About Race, this Seattle resident (above) offers a hard-hitting but user-friendly examination of race in America. Oluo's work on social issues such as race and gender has been published in The Guardian, The Stranger, Washington Post, ELLE magazine, NBC News and more. Oluo was named one of the Most Influential People in Seattle by Seattle Magazine, one of the 50 Most Influential Women in Seattle by Seattle Met, one of The Root's 100 Most Influential Americans in 2017 & 2018, and is the recipient of the Feminist Humanist Award 2018 by the American Humanist Association, the Media Justice Award by the Gender Justice League, and the 2018 Aubrey Davis Visionary Leadership Award by the Equal Opportunity Institute.
