Culture of anti-Blackness and the economic inequality

The police murders of Black people, and the demonstrations against systemic racism that followed, placed a spotlight on the nation’s long history of anti-Blackness. As protestors flood the streets to call for social, political, and economic change, the similarities between Black Lives Matter and the Civil Rights Movement become clear. Both movements, despite being 60 years apart, demand policy reforms that advance justice, racial equity, and accountability for those in power.
 
Join the Economic Policy Institute (EPI), as we examine why policy must be changed in order to reverse the nation’s culture of anti-Blackness and the economic inequality surrounding it. EPI Distinguished Fellow Richard Rothstein will discuss his book, The Color of Law, followed by a panel discussion on reshaping the country into one that values Black lives and bolsters economic opportunities for all.  

Register for the webinar on reshaping the country into one that values Black lives and bolsters economic opportunities for all.
