Public Programs 2015

The Public Dialogues in Race and Difference series addresses relevant, salient issues related to race and difference and assembles panels of scholars and practitioners to share insights and offer policy prescriptions where applicable. In academic year 2015-2016, JWJI was pleased to host three public dialogues: a 50-year retrospective of the Voting Rights Act, a symposium on Race, Policing, and Social Justice, and a panel on the nexus between Southern History and Black History. The dialogues series is an important tool for community outreach. It is JWJI’s way of bringing the classroom to the community.
