Finally, a National Conversation on Race!
For years, we’ve all been lamenting the lack of a real, meaningful national discussion on race. Starting September 29, we hope you’ll join us to fix that.
We are very excited to announce today the “Race and America’s Future Virtual Book Club” – a six-week, online book club exploring the challenges and opportunities facing our changing nation.
The club will be based around the structure of our new book, Uncommon Common Ground: Race and America’s Future. (Note: None of us profit from these book sales. All proceeds go to the publisher.)
Every Wednesday right here on EquityBlog starting September 29, we will host an online conversation looking at crucial issues facing America as we push toward 2050 and our inevitable future as a nation with no majority ethnic or racial group.
Sept. 29: Are We Post-Racial Yet?
Oct. 6: Color Lines: Growing and Accepting Diversity
Oct. 13: Race and the Economy
Oct. 20: Urgent Challenges: Immigration, Incarceration, and Climate Change
Oct. 27: New Leadership for now and 2050
Nov. 3: Equity is the Superior Growth Model
We want to hear from you, though. Tell us what issues you want to talk about in this conversation.
We hope you will join us – and lead the national dialogue we need.
