On Friday, October 1st at 2:30 pm EST, join Dean Douglas as she speaks with Richard Rothstein, Distinguished Fellow of the Economic Policy Institute. 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. Dean Douglas and Dr. Rothstein will discuss his book, The Color of Law, which outlines America’s history of intentional, state-sanctioned segregation that produced unfair housing practices, the racial wealth gap, and continued discrimination against people of color in our nation.
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. Videos are also available on the Union YouTube Page.
