The Future Dialogue on Race

May 09, 2017
CATEGORY: Society, U.S.A.

Michele Norris, Amy Hinojosa, Adam Foss, and Khizr Khan speak at the Aspen Institute Symposium on the State of Race in America. It was held in April. 

While the subject of race and racism will likely continue to be a contentious topic for years to come, it is a discussion that is imperative for civil society. How does the dialogue on race continue? Will protests in the streets and boycotts become the new mode of discourse? What can be done to ease racial anxiety and promote common understanding? Former NPR Host and Director of The Race Card Project Michele Norris leads a discussion about how to converse about race with Khizr Khan, Adam Foss, and Amy Hinojosa.
