Jelani Cobb at the Stanford Community Hour

June 7, 2020 - 1:00pm to 2:00pm

As we continue to grapple with the tragedies of these times, I am happy to announce that Professor Jelani Cobb (Columbia Journalism School & contributing writer for The New Yorker) will be our special guest on the Stanford Community Hour on Sunday at 1pm PST.

Jelani Cobb has been contributing to The New Yorker since 2012, and became a staff writer in 2015. He writes frequently about race, politics, history, and culture. His most recent book is The Substance of Hope: Barack Obama and the Paradox of Progress. He won the 2015 Sidney Hillman Prize for Opinion and Analysis Journalism, for his columns on race, the police, and injustice. He teaches at Columbia University’s Graduate School of Journalism.
