An award-winning journalist, Dr. Hill has received numerous prestigious awards from the National Association of Black Journalists, GLAAD, and the International Academy of Digital Arts and Sciences.

Dr. Hill is the Steve Charles Professor of Media, Cities, and Solutions at Temple University. Prior to that, he held positions at Columbia University and Morehouse College.

Since his days as a youth in Philadelphia, Dr. Hill has been a social justice activist and organizer. He is a founding board member of My5th, a non-profit organization devoted to educating youth about their legal rights and responsibilities. He is also a board member and organizer of the Philadelphia Student Union. Dr. Hill also works closely with the ACLU Drug Reform Project, focusing on drug informant policy.

Speaking Topics
  • The War on Youth

    In the last 50 years, America's youth have been increasingly marginalized in society. Marc Lamont Hill says we've replaced a language of love, when talking about our youth, with one of blame. America has inflicted injunctions on gangs, legislation against baggy pants, and attacks on rap music, all leading to the propaganda that today's youth are worse than young generations before them. Hill wants to combat the misconceptions plaguing today's youth with an acknowledgement that, as integral to American society's fabric, they are rich with resources rather than social burdens.

  • Building Community in an Hour of Chaos: Progress in the Age of Obama

    Professor, author, and cultural critic Marc Lamont Hill offers a critical analysis of the current social and political moment. By identifying key issues, challenges, controversies, and trends that have emerged or lingered during the "Obama era," Dr. Hill spotlights the work that must be done to sustain the progress of the Freedom Struggle. Moving beyond mere critique, he also provides concrete solutions, as well as sites of hope and possibility for healing our national, local, and university communities.

  • Why Black Fraternities & Sororities Still Matter

    As we enter the 21st century, many people question the role, purpose, and function of Black Greek Letter Organizations (BGLOs). In this lecture, Marc Lamont Hill (a member of Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity Inc.) argues that Black fraternities and sororities still play a critical role in the Black community. He takes on some of the key issues and challenges faced by BGLOs such as hazing, political engagement, and institution building. Rather than merely spotlighting problems, Dr. Hill also offers concrete solutions and shares his vision for building and sustaining strong 21st-century Black fraternities and sororities.
