PNW Race, Racism, Anti-Racism Series: The Racial Face of War (Canceled)
April 6 @ 12:30 pm - 1:45 pm
This event has been canceled.
Kim Scipes, Ph.D., Professor of Sociology at PNW and Vince Emanuele, PNW Alumni and Marine Veteran.
Wars fought by the United State (since 1945) have been fought against people of color. How does growing up in the US, with our history of racism and white supremacy, impact how the US fights its wars? How does it affect individual Marines or soldiers who fight these wars?
Vince Emanuele, a white enlisted man from Chesterton, IN and a Marine veteran of two deployments to Iraq, talks with Kim Scipes (himself a Vietnam-era Marine veteran) about why he volunteered to serve, his experiences in Iraq and the understanding he has developed since his time in the military.
