|Whiteness: The Meaning of a Racial, Social, and Legal Construct (Public Dialogue Series)THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 16, 2017, 7 – 8:30PM EST
In the wake of Donald Trump’s election and bestselling books like Hillbilly Elegy and White Trash, there is a growing realization that whiteness is as much a social racial and political identity as being African, Latinx, Asian or Native American. In partnership with the Jimmy Carter Presidential Library and Museum, JWJI is pleased to host a panel on the evolution of whiteness in American society. Our esteemed panel brings their interdisciplinary perspective to the panel to explain why race—including whiteness—still matters in America.
