Mr. Wise's Bio:

Tim Wise is among the most prominent anti-racist writers and activists in
the U.S., and has been called, "one of the most brilliant, articulate and
courageous critics of white privilege in the nation," by best-selling
author and University of Pennsylvania professor Michael Eric Dyson.

Wise has spoken to over 80,000 people in 47 states, and on over 350 college
campuses, including Harvard, Stanford, and the Law Schools at Yale and
Columbia. He has trained corporate, government, and law enforcement
officials on methods for dismantling racism in their institutions, and has
served as a consultant for plaintiff's attorneys in federal discrimination
cases in New York and Washington State. In summer, 2005, Wise will serve as
an adjunct faculty member of the School of Social Work at Smith College, in
Northampton, Massachusetts.

Wise has provided anti-racism training to teachers nationwide, and
conducted trainings with physicians and medical industry professionals on
how to combat racial inequities in health care. In September 2001, Wise
served as adjunct faculty at the Poynter Institute in St. Petersburg,
Florida, where he trained journalists to eliminate racial bias in
reporting. From 1999-2003, Wise was an advisor to the Fisk University Race
Relations Institute, and in the early '90s was Associate Director of the
Louisiana Coalition Against Racism and Nazism: the largest of the many
groups organized for the purpose of defeating neo-Nazi political candidate,
David Duke.

Wise is the author of two books to be released in 2005: White Like Me:
Reflections on Race from a Privileged Son (Soft Skull Press) and
Affirmative Action: Racial Preference in Black and White (Routledge). He
has contributed essays to a dozen books and anthologies including White
Privilege: Essential Readings on the Other Side of Racism and Should
America Pay?: Slavery and the Raging Debate on Reparations. Wise is also
featured in White Men Challenging Racism: Thirty-Five Personal Stories
(Duke University Press).

Wise received the 2001 British Diversity Award for best feature essay on
race issues, and is a featured columnist with the ZNet Commentary Program:
a web service that disseminates essays by prominent progressive and radical
educators. His writings are taught at hundreds of colleges and have
appeared in dozens of popular and professional journals. Wise serves as the
Race and Ethnicity Editor for LIP Magazine, and articles about his work
have appeared in the Los Angeles Times, Washington Post and San Francisco
Chronicle. He has been a featured guest on hundreds of radio and television
programs, worldwide.

Wise has a B.A. in Political Science from Tulane University, where his
anti-apartheid work received international attention and the thanks of
Nelson Mandela and Archbishop Desmond Tutu. He and his wife Kristy are the
proud parents of two daughters.
