Crosscut Festival 2022
Keynote Speaker Nikole Hannah-Jones with Christopher Sebastian Parker

The Crosscut Festival returns in 2022 in a hybrid format, featuring in-person sessions and streaming online events. Speakers from across the nation and around the region will join us to consider issues in politics, social justice, the economy, science, the environment, innovation, and much more.

Keynote Speaker Nikole Hannah-Jones
Nikole Hannah-Jones’s landmark 1619 Project challenged our country to rethink and reframe American history, to account for the brutal legacy of slavery. It also shook up the conversation about race everywhere, from our national politics to our local school rooms. Now with her new book that expands the project, Nikole Hannah-Jones returns with a lot more to say. Learn more about Nikole.

Christopher Sebastian Parker, Ph.D., joins Hannah-Jones as moderator. Parker is the Stuart A. Scheingold Professor of Social Justice and Political Science in the Department of Political Science at the University of Washington. Learn more about Christopher.
