Widely recognized for his uncanny ability to speak truth to power, Robinson is a Pulitzer Prize-winning writer who brings audiences a tested perspective on today’s political news. In his various roles at The Washington Post and while reporting abroad, Robinson has witnessed first-hand the revolution taking place online and in the 24/7 news cycle and has seen how the news media are influencing American culture. As one of the most prominent African-American intellectuals on the scene and author of Disintegration: The Splintering of Black America (2010), Robinson also shares his understanding of race relations in the United States and explains why many popular conceptions are now obsolete.
