Foundations of Inclusion; Spring 2019 Speaker Series: Jeff Chang - We Gon' Be Alright

Jeff Chang is Vice President of Narrative, Arts, and Culture at Race Forward and was previously Executive Director of the Institute for Diversty in the Arts at Stanford University.  He has written extensively on culture, politics, the arts, and music.  His latest book, We Gon' Be Alright: Notes on Race and Resegregation, explores the rise and fall of the idea of "diversity" and argues that undoing resegregation is key to moving forward to racial and cultural equity.
