Abbey Speaker Series: Defining Racial Justice in the 21st Century

February 23 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm

In the wake of a summer of protests against police brutality, the midst of an ongoing pandemic, and the aftermath of a contentious election, this event brings together a panel of Black academic, journalistic, religious, and political leaders to discuss and debate their different definitions of what racial justice looks like – and how it might be achieved – in the twenty-first century.

The Program for Public Discourse will host the Abbey Speaker Series: “Defining Racial Justice in the 21st Century.” the event features a panel discussion between Black journalistic, political, academic and religious leaders. Speakers include Illinois State University Department of History Professor Dr. Touré Reed, NC State Senator Valerie Foushee and Executive Director of the Seymour Institute for Black Church and Policy Studies at Harvard University Dr. Jacqueline Rivers and will be moderated by New York Times columnist and CBS News political analyst Jamelle Bouie.
