Dr. Marc Lamont Hill Reviews

  • Middle Tennessee State University - Feb 26 2021

  • Dr. Hill was just AMAZING. He and Dr. Mark Campbell hit it out of the park. Even thought they had just met on Friday, it felt like they had known each other for ever and the conversation just flowed. They were two highly intellectual and thoughtful speakers and complimented each other in a remarkable way. I was even amazed to learn that they both have authored books with the same title, We Still Here. Dr. Hill's open and honest discussion about the importance of supporting all Black identities within the Black Lives Matter was particularly insightful. One of my favorite lines by Dr. Hill was, "You can't heal what you don't reveal", a quote he immediately attributed to JayZ which made us chuckle but was quite prolific in terms of the conversation. All in all, he was a fantastic addition to our program and we are very thankful that he was able to participate.
