Pulitzer Prize-Winning Journalist Nicholas Kristof to Lecture at University of Montana – 3/10 – Missoula
March 10 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm
The University of Montana Maureen and Mike Mansfield Center will present Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Nicholas Kristof at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, March 10, at UM’s Dennison Theatre. Doors will open at 6:30 p.m.
Free and open to the public, Kristof will present “Rebuilding America,” an in-depth look at how economic and social upheaval has prevented millions from achieving the American dream and how people are working together to rebuild upward mobility.
“We are honored to host one of the world’s preeminent journalists and renowned voices of equality and the modern human condition,” Deena Mansour, executive director of the center, said. “Kristof’s writings on the diverse issues plaguing humanitarian efforts, women and working-class people have challenged the way we think and respond to the most important conversations of our time.”
Mansour said the annual Mansfield Lecture has been revived after a decades-long hiatus.
“Tightrope” explores the deep structural issues in the U.S. that have negatively impacted Americans’ mental health, substance abuse rates and access to health care ─ issues that have devastated many communities.
