February 25, 2011
Time:3-5 p.m.
Description:Author Maggie Anderson discusses her forthcoming book, "Our Black Year: A Tale of Buying Black in America's Racially Divided Economy." The book chronicles the experiences of Anderson and her suburban, middle-class black family after embarking on a year-long public pledge to "buy black," which she called the Empowerment Experiment (EE). In this talk, Anderson emphasizes the extent to which the Empowerment Experiment resulted in a movement that inspired and found support from business owners, consumers, academics, professional and activist organizations. The experiment also led to a landmark study conducted by Chicago's Northwestern University Kellogg Graduate School of Management.
