Indiana University Education Conference

Thursday, July 13, 2017, 8:00 a.m. – 3:45 p.m.
Indiana Convention Center, Sagamore Ballroom 1–3

Educators from across the county attend this one-day conference. This year's conference features Michael Eric Dyson, named by Essence magazine as one of the 50 most inspiring African American’s in the U.S., as the keynote speaker. An MSNBC political analyst and former host of NPR’s The Michael Eric Dyson Show, Dyson is also an award-winning author. His speeches and books both provide some of the most significant commentaries on modern social and intellectual thought today, interwoven with a combination of cultural criticism, race theory, religion, philosophical reflection and gender studies. Works such as Making Malcolm X; I May Not Get There with You; Holler if You Hear Me; and Mercy, Mercy Me: The Art, Loves and Demons of Marvin Gaye deeply probe social themes and cultural politics.
