About PNW’s Race, Racism, Anti-Racism Series
Since the brutal killing of George Floyd, millions of Americans and people in other countries have been shocked and outraged. Hundreds of protests have been held in cities large and small across America – perhaps the largest demonstrations against racism since the Civil Rights Movement of the 1960s. Urgent questions about inequality, racial discrimination and police violence have opened up a national dialogue. Engage with us in faculty-driven discussion as we reflect on these recent events and social movements.
