In the wake of high-profile killings of unarmed Black people at the hands of both police and civilians, recent months have seen unprecedented numbers of protesters taking to the streets all over the world and demanding racial justice. These events have intensified debates about ongoing systemic racism in the United States, with many people left wondering just how far we’ve really come since the days of Jim Crow.
The need for dialogue has never been more acute, particularly as we approach a presidential election in which racial animus is sure to once again play an appalling role. In this timely lecture, award-winning author Isabel Wilkerson will address the persistence of racial injustice as a national challenge and what history can teach us as we work to resolve it.
