Race and Reckoning: Democracy in the Balance

March 7, 2023 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

EST  | Virtual

The United States emerged from World War I as the most dominant democracy ever—a model for aspiring democracies worldwide. Yet today that democracy seems increasingly fragile—as America struggles with divisions of race, ethnicity, and class; as the very exceptionalism that symbolized our freedom threatens to undermine our most noble aspirations; and as young people wonder whether they will have a democracy left to celebrate.

Join Public Kinship innovator Dr. Bobby Austin and best-selling author Ellis Cose for a conversation and Q&A about the most pressing issues facing American democracy and how civic education and civility can create a better future.
