Join us on Wednesday, August 12th, for a Webinar on
Roots and Impact of Racism in the United States
Join us for the third webinar installment in our series on Wednesday, August 12, 5:00-6:15pm PDT, titled, Roots and Impact of Racism in the United States. Focusing on the experiences of African Americans, this panel will feature speakers from various ethnic backgrounds who will address the history of the formation of narratives about colonized peoples which have led to what we today call “implicit bias” and how these narratives became embedded in American society, leading to institutional racism that functions differently for each non-white group. The panel will include representatives of the African American, Indigenous, Asian, Latinx, Muslim, and Jewish communities.
