Description


This event will be LIVE-STREAMED.

Racism undermines the very foundations of democracy. From systematic discrimination to the rise in white supremacy, racist currents in our society prevent the free and equal participation of all. Dr. Johnnetta Betsch Cole, president of the National Council of Negro Women and former president of Spelman College, moderates an urgent panel discussion delving into causes and solutions.
