Race and Ethnic Relations in the “Post-Racial” Society

October 12, 2016 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Members Free Guests $5 per session suggested donation
Second Wednesdays this Fall

Moderator: Dr. Joseph Fashing

In the aftermath of the election of Barack Obama, many “experts” were declaring that we had entered a post-racial era. This series of discussions will attempt to evaluate the status of race and ethnic relations eight years later and to opine on what might be the future of race and ethnic relations in the United States. There will be a selection of readings on such issues as the state of minority education, drug policy, mass incarceration, police violence, etc., from a variety of perspectives.

The New York Society for Ethical Culture is a humanist community dedicated to ethical relationships, social justice, and environmental stewardship. Entry to our 100-year-old building and meeting rooms is wheelchair accessible. For events in our Auditorium and Social Hall, please call ahead (212-874-5210 x 121) and plan to arrive one hour before start time.
