This summer, the nonpartisan Pew Research Center released a disturbing report about race and inequality in the United States. The report concluded from survey data that four in ten Blacks are doubtful that our country will ever achieve racial equality, and that whites have “widely different perceptions” about what life is like in this U.S. for people of color. These divides make clear that we have much more work to do if we are to achieve understanding about the entrenched problems of racial inequality.
We hope you will join us on Wednesday, September 7 as we convene a First Wednesdays panel in West Lafayette to discuss racial justice and policing.
