Book cover: Imagination: A Manifesto

Benjamin will discuss her latest book which examines the power of our imagination to challenge systems of oppression and to create a world in which everyone can thrive.

A highly regarded public speaker, Benjamin’s talks have focused on ensuring that AI does not deepen historical discrimination and that technological fixes don’t become substitutes for wider social change.

As a professor of African American Studies at Princeton University, Benjamin’s research examines how advancements in science, medicine and technology intersect with social issues.

The book, Imagination: A Manifesto about the power of imagination challenging systems of oppression is out now.

The event is open to the public virtually. The discussion will begin at 2pm. You can register online at RTI.org/Imagine.
