Office for Equity and Diversity and University Libraries will be hosting a Candid Conversation

Please attend a candid conversation titled Racism in a "Post Racial" America, which is sponsored by the Office for Equity and Diversity and University Libraries. The event will be held in 120 Andersen Library on Friday, February 22, 2013 from 1:30-3pm.


With the 2008 election of the country's first African-American president, some hoped the nation had reached post-racialism. But the wealth and achievement gaps have grown, men of color comprise a large number of our prison inmates; discrimination against Indigenous people continues, and anti-immigration policies are on the rise. Join us for a candid discussion on how race and racism inform these issues.
