Join us for the tenth in our Public Voices series on Obama, Race and Politics. During Obama’s presidency we have seen the Black Lives Matter movement emerge while at the same time we have the intensification of resentment toward ‘the other’ echoed in the speeches of Trump and others.  The months immediately following the end of Obama’s administration is an important time to explore what his presidency has meant for the politics of race in this country.


This Public Voices, a discussion among panelists Michael Eric Dyson (author, The Black Presidency: Barack Obama and the Politics of Race in America), Dr. Julianne Malveaux, (President Emerita of Bennett College for Women), and Deva Woodly (The New School) moderated by Frederick Harris (Columbia University), will address the Obama presidency, race and politics in this country in light of how charged the atmosphere has become with recent egregious events.
