Michael Eric Dyson and Heather McGhee: Reckoning with Racism

Overview

Presented as a part of the series 400 Years of Inequality: Slavery, Race, and Our Unresolved History.

White Supremacy. Microaggressions. Black Lives Matter. Reparations. The issues are urgent, the conversation moving at breakneck speed, but is our country heading forward, or backward? Author, speaker, preacher and Georgetown University professor Michael Eric Dyson is joined by Heather McGhee, former head of Demos and Brooklyn Community Foundation Fair and Just Fellow, for this discussion on America’s essential race question.

This program is presented as part of Brooklyn Historical Society’s 400 Years of Inequality: Slavery, Race, and Our Unresolved History initiative, an immersive series of reflection, analysis, and discussion acknowledging our nation’s unresolved history of slavery.
