CHAT WITH AUTHOR COLSON WHITEHEAD
Cornell Tech in collaboration with the NYC DOE’s CS4All and NYC Men Teach, presents Fireside with Colson Whitehead. Participants at this virtual event will have the opportunity to hear author Colson Whitehead read excerpts from his Pulitzer Prize winning book, The Nickel Boys. After Colson Whitehead’s talk, participants have the opportunity to engage in critical yet casual conversation to explore the messaging we send to brown and Black children in the classroom and how, particularly in Computer Science, teacher representation matters.
Colson Whitehead is the author of nine books of fiction and non-fiction, including The Underground Railroad, which was a #1 New York Times bestseller and won the Pulitzer Prize and the National Book Award. A recipient of MacArthur and Guggenheim Fellowships, he lives in New York City.
Join us from 4:30 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. Monday, March 1st, for Fireside with Colson Whitehead. Register at https://bit.ly/CS4AllandColson today. All are welcome!

Each student admitted into the program will receive a full scholarship that covers 100% of program costs (including tuition and summer experiences for all 2 years)!
