Talks at the Schomburg: Stuck In Segregation

June 3 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

| Free

Throughout history, legal and de facto forms of segregation have restricted the ability of black communities to fully access housing, education, and banking. A long-fought battle before the civil rights movement, the complexity of today’s patterns of segregation takes many forms within public policy, income, and racial discrimination. This provocative conversation will explore new ideas, history, and the contemporary construction of segregation. Join panelists Ta-Nehisi Coates (The Atlantic), Patrick Sharkey (New York University), and Richard Rothstein (Economic Policy Institute) and moderator Farai Chideya.

Presented in collaboration with the Sidney Hillman Foundation
