Controversial writer and filmmaker Dinesh D’Souza will appear at UTC on Oct. 9 as part of the 2017 Burkett Miller Distinguished Lecture Series. He will be speaking on “The Moral Case for Capitalism.”
The presentation takes place at noon at the Roland Hayes Concert Hall in the university’s Fine Arts Center. The event is sponsored by the Scott L. Probasco Jr. Chair of Free Enterprise.
Born in Bombay, India, and now a naturalized U.S. citizen, D’Souza is an internationally recognized author, filmmaker and political commentator. He has been named one of America’s most influential conservative thinkers by The New York Times magazine. The World Affairs Council lists him as one of the nation’s 500 leading authorities on international issues, and Newsweek cited him as one of the country’s most prominent Asian-Americans.
He has produced three of the top eight highest-grossing political documentaries, including 2016’s Hillary’s America: The Secret History of the Democratic Party, the highest-grossing documentary of that year.
Earlier in 2016, he released another documentary, 2016: Obama’s America. Both films have garnered significant attention, praised by conservatives as truth-telling and criticized by liberals, who say the films propagate conspiracy theories.
He also is the author of 18 books; his articles have appeared in major magazines and newspapers, and he is a frequent commentator on national and international news programs.
