Daemen University will celebrate its 75th anniversary with special keynote speaker Baratunde Thurston, an Emmy-nominated host who has worked for The Onion, produced for “The Daily Show,” advised the Obama White House, and wrote the New York Times bestseller “How To Be Black.”

He’s the executive producer and host of “How To Citizen with Baratunde,” which Apple named one of its favorite podcasts of 2020. Thurston also received the Social Impact Award at the 2021 iHeartRadio Podcast Awards on behalf of “How to Citizen with Baratunde.” In 2019, he delivered what MSNBC’s Brian Williams called “one of the greatest TED talks of all time.”

A press release said, “Thurston is unique in his ability to integrate and synthesize themes of race, culture, politics and technology to explain where our nation is and where we can take it.”
