Wednesday 2 December 5:30pm
Tricia Rose, professor of Africana studies, will deliver a lecture titled "How Structural Racism Works," sponsored by the Office of the Provost in collaboration with the Center for the Study or Race and Ethnicity in America. The lecture will serve an introduction to the new series of lectures and workshops, which will address structural racism in the United States, its origins, and how it manifests. Continuing through the spring and fall semesters, the series will focus on five areas that perpetuate racism including housing, wealth, education, criminal justice, and mass media. Provost Richard M. Locke will give an opening introduction. All sessions are free and open to the public, but advance registration is required. The event begins at 5:30 p.m. in the Granoff Center for the Creative Arts, Martinos Auditorium, 154 Angell St.
