Evening from the Archives: Black History Month Special with Elaine Welteroth

In honor of Black History Month, we’re diving into our archives to bring back some of our favorite and most impactful Commonwealth Club programs of the last few years. From Dr. Ibram X. Kendi talking about his groundbreaking book How to Be an Antiracist with Alicia Garza in 2019 to Stacey Abrams discussing the fight for voting rights with "Pod Save America"’s Dan Pfeiffer last year, we’ve been honored to host some of the brightest and most influential Black speakers.

For our last program, we're re-airing one of our most uplifting conversations of the last few years. Elaine Welteroth, now a co-host of "The Talk" and a judge on "Project Runway," joined us in 2019 to celebrate the release of her book More Than Enough: Claiming Space for Who You Are (No Matter What They Say). An outspoken proponent of diversity and inclusion, Welteroth has often noted throughout her career that she's consistently the only black woman in the room. Enjoy an uplifting hour of conversation celebrating originality, activism and more!

Join us for an Evening from the Archives special, and join the live chat to talk about the program and the Club with other members and supporters.
