A History of Slavery and Discrimination 1970-2020 by Gibbel Kraybill & Hess LLP
This event has expired and is here for your information.
This seminar starts in 1970 with the end of the civil rights movement and takes a close look at the last 50 years (from 1970 until today). It will explore how our country has made progress, most notably the election of our first African-American president, but will also look at how the history of slavery, legalized discrimination, violence and white supremacy ideology remains deeply engrained in our systems, institutions and some of our political leaders. It is a particularly timely seminar in light of the murder of George Floyd and the resulting protests that have placed a bright light on how we continue to struggle with our country’s history of slavery and discrimination.
