Heather Mac Donald is the Thomas W. Smith Fellow at the Manhattan Institute, a contributing editor of City Journal, and a New York Times bestselling author. She is a recipient of the 2005 Bradley Prize. Mac Donald's newest book, The Diversity Delusion: How Race and Gender Pandering Corrupt the University and Undermine Our Culture (2018), argues that toxic ideas first spread by higher education have undermined humanistic values, fueled intolerance, and widened divisions in our larger culture. At the Criminal Justice Legal Foundation's 2018 annual meeting in downtown Los Angeles, U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions called Mac Donald, "the greatest thinker on criminal justice in America today."

Clarence Page will serve as the lecture moderator. Page is a 1989 Pulitzer Prize winner for Commentary, nationally syndicated columnist, member of the Chicago Tribune's editorial board, and author of the book, Showing My Color: Impolite Essays on Race and Identity a new collection of columns, Culture Worrier: Reflections on Race, Politics and Social Change.

Mac Donald will offer remarks, followed by a Q&A session with Page. Audience members will have the opportunity to submit questions before and during the lecture for Page to pose as moderator.

This event is sponsored by Young Americans for Freedom at Beloit College, a student's organization dedicated to advancing the cause of conservatism on campuses across the nation since 1960.
