The Scripps Presents fall season is here! This year marks the 50th anniversaries of The Claremont Colleges’ Office of Black Student Affairs, Chicano Latino Student Affairs, Department of Africana Studies, and Department of Chicana/o Latina/o Studies—programs that create a space for rich, essential, and thoughtful dialogue around the scholarly and cultural.

Scripps Presents honors these milestones with a slate of events this fall featuring literary superstars Colson Whitehead and Carmen Maria Machado, Latina activist Cherríe Moraga, and chef Carla Hall, among others. Join us in celebrating iconic figures who have shaped powerful legacies and emerging voices who are boldly plotting our futures. Check out the entire season on our calendar or peruse an online version of our program guide here!

Tickets available to the Scripps community on August 13 at 10am and to the general public beginning on August 15 at 10am!
Scripps Presents is an electrifying mix of storytellers and artists, policymakers and musicians – and everything in between.

You're invited to these eye-opening, mind-bending, genre-defying tête-à-têtes with iconic and emerging thinkers and doers, writers and performers, whose passion and perspective are changing the way we see the world.
