Tavis Smiley, best-selling author and popular talk show host, told students and faculty who filled Founders Auditorium on Tuesday that we must be willing to step outside our comfort zones.

Even with Barack Obama in the White House, there are still people who prejudge others on the basis of race, he said.

Smiley, this year’s Fasnacht lecturer, emphasized the importance of love and working for the greater good.

“My sense is that we all want as Americans the same thing and that is to live in a nation that is as good as it’s promise,” Smiley said. “We cannot simply stop at the symbolism, when what we need is substance,” Smiley said.
