A Rice professor shares her life journey

California State University, Long Beach

Join Rice sociologist Ruth López Turley as she shares her incredible life story and explains how her experience and her faith drew her to focus on educational inequality in the United States. López Turley went from one of twelve children in a minimum wage, single family home to becoming a Stanford-trained, tenured sociologist who works every day to help fix our educational system, with an incisive critique of the racial disparities and injustices that have persisted for generations.
