Friday, February 12, 2021, 12:00 p.m.
Venue: Online
Admission: Free
Season: 2020-2021


Please join us for the first Teach-In event of the Spring 2021 semester—a roundtable discussion on the history of racism and white supremacy in urban Texas. Featuring six distinguished historians, the roundtable will examine this history from the perspective of diverse peoples in the past, including Black, Indigenous, South Asian, Jewish, Latinx, and white Texans. The roundtable will help us think through racism’s continuities and changes across time and space, as well as facilitate our continued consideration of the “living legacies” of white supremacy today.
