CANCELED: A Screening of “How Racism Harms White Americans: A Lecture with John H. Bracey, Jr.” (2013, 52 min)

January 27 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Please note: This event has been canceled. In this filmed lecture, distinguished historian John H. Bracey Jr. offers a provocative analysis of the devastating economic, political, and social effects of racism on white Americans. In a departure from analyses of racism that have focused primarily on white power and privilege, Bracey trains his focus on the high price that white people, especially working-class whites, have paid for more than two centuries of divisive race-based policies and attitudes. Through an array of examples, Bracey’s central point is that failing to acknowledge the centrality of race, and racism, to the American project not only minimizes the suffering of black people, but also blinds us to how white people have been harmed as well. Sponsored by the Office of Outreach and Education.
