Students are ready to talk about campus racism. Are you?

Lawrence Ross, the author of the best seller, The Divine Nine, has written a new blockbuster book: Blackballed: The Black and White Politics of Race on Americas Campuses. His Blackballed lecture on campus racism has been one of the HOTTEST in the country for the past four years, visiting over 200 schools. Are you ready to bring a Blackballed Zoom lecture to your students?

Why a Blackballed Lecture on Campus Racism?

Students of color started telling me their stories of living and surviving at PWIs. The verdict? Dire. Racist parties by fraternities and sororities to racial micro-aggression, created hostile campus environments for black, Latino, and Asian students.

And no one was listened to them.

That’s when I decided to write Blackballed: The Black and White Politics of Race on America’s Campuses.


From the University of Oklahoma to the University of Missouri, Tufts to Florida State, students of color have risen in protest at over 300 college campuses around the country. And universities began looking for an explanation and solutions. That’s where the Blackballed lecture on campus racism comes in…


2022 Blackballed Fall Lecture Tour…

The Blackballed lecture entertains and educates. Talking about racism is challenging, but students are ready to meet that challenge. The goal is not to develop non-racists, but ANTI-RACISTS. So bring a Blackballed lecture to your campus. I’m booking Blackballed lecture dates for Spring 2022. To book a Spring 2022 date, email Lawrence Ross at
