Title: 10 Questions: Reckoning: What is Hope?
Featuring: Tananarive Due, Herbie Hancock and Ramesh Srinivasan
Presented By: UCLA School of the Arts and Architecture
Originally Presented: Nov. 2, 2020

About This Series

Both an upper division undergraduate course and a series of public conversations open to the broader community, the UCLA School of the Arts and Architecture's "10 Questions” series invites the public to join UCLA students in the virtual classroom to engage in vibrant conversation alongside leading faculty and distinguished alumni from across the university.

With COVID-19, the climate crisis, social and political turmoil unlike anything we have seen in a generation, and of course, a presidential election on our minds, this third installment of the annual 10 Questions series will be asking the most urgent set of questions yet.

RSVP to attend a 10 Questions lecture here.
