CDSJP Lecture Series: SCHOOL SEGREGATION AND THE RACIAL GAP
Tuesday March 26, 2019 12:00pm to 1:00pm
It may be hard to believe, but our K-12 schools are as racially segregated today as they were 50 years ago. This ongoing problem, along with intractable systems of oppression and the rise of self-curated, racially homogenous social networks have had a clear and profound impact on racial dialogue in America. This education session will explore the history and current status of school segregation and will engage attendees in a discussion on the impact of racial isolation on our college students’ capacity to dialogue across difference. Particular attention will be paid to the engagement of white students, who are the most likely to be racially isolated in our schools.
