Danielle Allen

Oregon Humanities invites the public to a provocative onstage conversation on the themes of journalism and justice with Danielle Allen, a political theorist, MacArthur fellow, and Washington Post columnist, on Wednesday, May 22 from 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at the Alberta Rose Theatre in northeast Portland.

Allen is a professor of political science at Harvard University and the author of several books on education, citizenship and justice. Her 2017 memoir, “Cuz,” explores the life of her cousin Michael and how the so-called war on drugs, mass incarceration and other forms of racial violence contributed to his death at age 29.

Snacks and conversation will follow the program. Doors open at 6 p.m and minors are welcome when accompanied by a parent or guardian. Tickets are $10. No cost tickets are also available. Visit for more information. The event will also be streamed live at and on YouTube.
