CALS Community Conversation – A System Built on Racism

In an effort to continue our shared learning and growth, we invite you to join us on the last Tuesday of July, August and September for CALS Community Conversations focusing on race.

On July 28, Dr. Blair Kelley, author of the award-winning book, Right to Ride: Streetcar Boycotts and African American Citizenship in the Era of Plessy v. Ferguson, assistant dean for interdisciplinary studies and international programs for the College of Humanities and Social Sciences and associate professor of history will lead a conversation entitled, ‘A System Built on Racism.’

Discussion will focus on how today’s systemic racism was shaped and formed in history. This conversation aims to help CALS community members develop an accurate historical perspective about systemic racism that will support future discussions.
