Richard Benjamin

“My trip through the whitest towns in America”

 

Our next TED talk is by Richard Benjamin entitled, “My trip through the whitest towns in America.” As America becomes more and more multicultural, Rich has noticed a phenomenon: Some communities are actually getting less diverse. So he got out a map, found the whitest towns in the USA -- and moved in. In this funny, honest, human talk, he shares what he learned as a black man in Whitopia. Rich is a senior fellow at Demos, a multi-issue think tank, and is just completing a novel on money, loss and heterosexual melancholy. In his essays, book reviews and other writing, Rich gives thoughtful commentary on the changing nature of politics and culture. For his 2009 book Whitopia, he took a 26,909-mile journey through the heart of America's whitest locales, small towns and exurbs where white populations are concentrating as America, meanwhile, becomes ever more diverse. His book asks America to imagine itself in 2042, when white people are no longer the majority. What form will diversity take?

 

TED stands for Technology, Entertainment and Design, and the TED talks feature experts in a variety of fields who present unique ways of looking at their respective fields of expertise.

 

Everyone is welcome to these free sessions.

 

A discussion will take place after the lecture.
