Long before Hannibal Buress cracked a single Bill Cosby joke, Michael Eric Dyson deflated the myth of "America's Dad" in the brilliant and scathing book, Is Bill Cosby Right? Or Has the Black Middle Class Lost Its Mind? Name a topic central to the discussion of race in this country and Dyson -- in his various roles as New York Times columnist, Georgetown professor and best-selling author -- has probably discussed it with insight, wit and courageous candor. Now Dyson comes to Villa Ragusa to discuss his latest book The Black Presidency: Barack Obama and the Politics of Race in America. Be there as he explores the ways in which race and politics have shaped Obama's presidency during this special event presented by the Commonwealth Club.
