Following the global reckoning with race that took place following the murder of George Floyd in May 2020, deep-seated inequities came to the forefront of public consciousness and changed the nature of the movement for social and racial justice in the United States and beyond. Join Eddie S. Glaude, Jr., the James S. McDonnell Distinguished University Professor in the Department of African American Studies at Princeton University and an accomplished author and commentator, for an examination of the movement as it stands today and its historical parallels.

Moderated by Alaina Beverly, the Assistant Vice President for Urban Affairs at UChicago Civic Engagement Office.
