About the Series
This forum is a part of the Reckoning with the Past, Rebuilding the Future speaker series co-hosted by the Institutional Antiracism and Accountability (IARA) Project at the Ash Center and the Institute of Politics (IOP). Featuring prominent scholars, advocates, and leaders in the field, this series critically examines the past year of promises of institutional antiracist change and how more truthful teaching of American history can lead to social transformation. Join us to answer the questions: What has been done? What is the real impact? What work should we be doing? How do we, as individuals, institutions, and policymakers leverage new awareness and commitments around racial equity in order to dismantle structural racism in the United States?
