As the call to address racism reverberates around the world, Cornell’s College of Arts & Sciences has launched the year-long webinar series “Racism in America.” The series features Cornell faculty examining the latest research on the impact of racism on important aspects of American life, including government, society, health, and the economy.
In the next session of the series, our focus will be on racial discrimination within education and housing. Moderated by Adam Harris, staff writer for The Atlantic, four faculty experts will address educational inequities in the U.S. along with the history and present realities of residential and urban segregation. The discussion will also explore why efforts aimed at ameliorating the impact of racism in education and housing so often fail and offer ideas for how to effect real, sustainable change.
