POSTPONED: From 1619 to Present: An Exploration of Racial Exploitation in the U.S.

March 19 @ 2:30 pm - 5:00 pm

From 1619 to Present: An Exploration of Race in the US



Pulling from The 1619 Project, an ongoing initiative from The New York Times Magazine that reframes the country’s history by placing the consequences of Black enslavement at the center of our national narrative, the panelists discuss the historical context of de jure and de facto segregation as key to understanding contemporary inequities. Best-selling author, Richard Rothstein’s contributions place an emphasis on how American federal, state, and local governments deliberately created racial segregations in urban areas nationwide and the lasting effects of this disturbing history.
