PALM SPRINGS — Lauren Nile, the author of “RACE: My Story & Humanity’s Bottom Line” will appear at the Welwood Murray Memorial Library on Tuesday, Feb. 4 at 10:30 a.m. in The Cornelia White Community Room.

This free lecture is presented as part of programming for the season and with a focus on Black History Month. She will discuss her book and share her message about how all seven-plus billion human beings on Earth are very intricately related, and that it is time now for us, as a species, to mature beyond all bias, bigotry and violence. Racism, colorism, sexism, antisemitism, ageism, able-ism, heterosexism, homophobia, Islamaphobia, and all other forms of xenophobia have to go, all of them. It is time.

Lauren Nile has hosted “The Wisdom in the Middle” a Los Angeles-based cable public interest television show, and was most recently the host of “The Fate of Humanity: Crucial Conversations for Our Survival,” on the Variety Channel of, the leading producer, distributor, and online broadcaster of original, live, and on demand talk programming worldwide.

Lauren has been named both one of the 2019 Outstanding Voices of Palm Springs, and 2019 Advocate of the Year by Palm Springs Pride of Palm Springs.

This is one of the many free programs presented at the Welwood Murray Memorial Library. Lectures, films and a monthly book club are all a part of the schedule this year. A full printed schedule of events is available at the Welwood Murray Memorial Library as well as at the main Library and online.
