The Problem of the Color Line: A Discussion of Racism and Racial Profiling on Campus
As we grapple with recent incidents of racism and racial profiling on our campus, a panel of Afro-American Studies faculty and students will engage in a thoughtful, intellectually grounded discussion of how and why we got here. They will offer brief reflections from various disciplines, focused on race and racism in the United States.
This Teach-In will provide the critical context we need to understand the troubled past and envision higher expectations of our community.
Presented by W.E.B. Du Bois Department of Afro-American Studies and W.E.B. Du Bois Center.
Co-sponsored by the Office of Equity & Inclusion
