Using the debate over the safety and efficacy of hydroxychloroquine as a treatment for COVID-19 as a case study, this talk will explore ways to communicate the nature of emerging science to the press and public in polarized times and make the case for the need to more cogently communicate the standards that govern assessment of the quality of scientific evidence.

As the lead writer for New York Times Magazine’s “The 1619 Project,” a major viral multimedia initiative observing the 400th anniversary of the first African slaves arriving in America, award-winning journalist Nikole Hannah-Jones explores the lasting legacy of black enslavement on the nation—specifically, how black Americans pushed for the democracy we have today.
Nothing we know about American life today has been untouched by slavery. Everything from social infrastructure and segregation to music and sugar have been shaped by it. “The 1619 Project” features all black American authors, activists, journalists, and more, spreading its heartbreaking and absolutely essential message worldwide.
In her talk, Hannah-Jones will explore exactly how, despite our progress, we must remain vigilant in the vital fight against racial inequality, and how it is ethically imperative to reassess longstanding narratives if we want to get closer to the truth and move forward into a better future, together.
