Race in America Today: A Panel Discussion

Upcoming Event
Tuesday, August 23, 2016 at 7:00 pm

Join April Ryan, Washington Bureau chief for American Urban Radio Networks and author of The Presidency in Black and White, for the third in an ongoing series of discussions focusing on race in America. As she has in previous presentations, Ryan will moderate a panel of leading writers and commentators to examine recent and longstanding issues, with special attention this time to the increasingly fraught relationship between police officers and black communities.

Panelists include Joy-Ann Reid, a national correspondent on MSNBC and author of Fracture: Barack Obama, the Clintons, and the Racial Divide; Eddie S. Glaude Jr., professor of religion and chair of Princeton’s Center for African-American Studies, and author of Democracy in Black; Dr. Julianne Malveaux, President Emerita of Bennett College for Women, commentator, and author of Are We Better Off? Race, Obama and Public Policy; Victoria Christopher Murray, one of the USA's best selling contemporary African American novelists, the most recent being Stand Your Ground; and F. Michael Higginbotham, Wilson H. Elkins Professor of Law, former Interim Dean at the University of Baltimore School of Law, and author of Ghosts of Jim Crow: Ending Racism in Post-Racial America.    

C-SPAN will be on hand to broadcast this event live.

Update 8/23: Joy-Ann Reid is unable to attend this evening's panel discussion.
