B. Anthony Bogues, director, Center for the Study of Slavery & Justice, Asa Messer Professor of Humanities and Critical Theory.
This forum is an open dialogue between two directors at the Center for the Study of Slavery & Justice (CSSJ) and Center for the Study of Race & Ethnicity in America (CSREA) on the importance of studying race, ethnicity and racial histories. Such work is crucial to building a just society as it educates, contextualizes, challenges and reframes the histories of race and racism. Professor Bogues and Professor Rose will comment on the current state of race and justice and the programs and focus of each center.
