About the Series

Over the course of the 2020–21 academic year, the Center for the Study of Race and Ethnicity in America at Brown, in partnership with the Office of the Provost, undertook a systematic investigation of the enduring contemporary effects of anti-Black racism in America. Drawing on the expertise of Brown scholars from a range of fields and perspectives, a series of eight webinars generated critical engagements with society’s most fundamental and urgent questions around race. The Race & in America series amplifies the impact and extends the reach of these penetrating discussions through expanded content and resources presented over eight volumes.
