Antwerp America Foudation welcomes Cecilia Kang, New York Times instant bestselling author of “An Ugly Truth: Inside Facebook's Battle for Domination”.
In May we welcomed world-renowned economics professor and author Jeffrey Sachs, America’s top expert in sustainable development for our first online event.
Today Antwerp America Foundation is proud to invite you to its first live event.
We are honoured to welcome New York Times instant bestselling author Cecilia Kang as our distinguished keynote speaker.
Along with Sheera Frenkel Cecilia Kang wrote the instant bestseller “An Ugly Truth: Inside Facebook's Battle for Domination”. The book reveals the tech story of our times in a riveting, behind-the-scenes exposé that offers a startling account of Facebook: the mishandling of users’ data, the spreading of fake news and the amplification of polarizing speech. Kang and Frenkel were part of the team of investigative journalists recognized as 2019 Finalists for the Pulitzer Prize for National Reporting.
Introducing our guest speaker is Philippe De Backer, former Belgian Minister of Digital Agenda and Telecom.
We gladly welcome you on October 28th at 6 PM at the Chamber of Commerce in Antwerp, Markgravestraat 12.
