July 22, 2020

In his talk, “Antiracism: Moving America Toward Democracy,” Bruce A. Jacobs will discuss how the United States will never be a functioning democracy until we overcome white supremacy in our societal structure and within ourselves, and how the our nation’s founding legacy of white supremacy is itself the main reason why America now trails the developed world in citizen rights such as health care, education, and basic economic security. Jacobs will talk personally and politically about both the devastation and the massive opportunity of our current moment as America faces both its lethal dysfunction and a widening demand for remedies, with African-American demands for justice leading the way.
