The tenth biennial Race in 21st Century America conference is FREE to attend and it brings to campus leading scholars, community activists, public officials and residents, representing racial, ethnic, gender and ideological diversity, to participate in an important conversation with the MSU community about the problem of race in America. Though the conference will cover a number of areas, our theme this year is Race, Gender and Sexuality. The race conference, as we call it, is fundamentally designed to examine systems of power and privilege in the United States, especially the ways in which they impact communities of color. We also identify specific goals and strategies that promote democratic, yet radically transformative, social, economic and political structures…Our project is not simply about identifying and examining problems, but especially proposing actionable recommendations for addressing twenty-first century challenges.
