On Friday, September 17th at 2:30 pm EST, join Dean Douglas as she speaks with Justin J. Pearson, co-founder of Memphis Community Against the Pipeline. Just Conversations during the fall semester will dive deeper into the essays and themes discussed in our fall community read, The 1619 Project from the New York Times. In this conversation, Dean Douglas and Pearson will explore housing segregation laws and how they have contributed to environmental racism and disproportionate health outcomes for people of color.
EDS at Union’s Facebook Live series Just Conversations with Kelly Brown Douglas explores the racialized inequities intrinsic to our nation and our collective responsibility to create a more just future.
These 30-minute conversations featured on the EDS at Union Facebook page will invite activists and religious, political, and thought leaders to discuss their work being champions for justice.
