Tuesday, Feb. 18's Lowdown

The Humboldt scenesters are keeping it pretty low key Tuesday night -- still recovering from the debaucherous bacchanal that is President's Day, we have to assume.

Of note, sociologist, author, radio host and frequent MSNBC contributor Michael Eric Dyson will give his take on the current state of race relations in America to anyone inclined to jaunt up to the Van Duzer Theatre. An ordained Baptist minister and Georgetown University professor, Dyson has penned bestselling books such as Making Malcolm X; Is Bill Cosby Right? Or Has the Black Middle Class Lost Its Mind?; and Come Hell or High Water: Hurricane Katrina and the Color of Disaster among others.

By percentage, will this be the most white room Dyson speaks to all year? Place your bets, Humboldt! Other Tuesday night options in your Lowdown below.
