Friday, February 9, 2018
3:30-5 p.m.
Nafziger Conference Room, 5055 , Vilas Hall
Several instances of Black men dying at the hands of police in Spring 2015 raised the profile of the issue of police treatment of Blacks, and more generally brought about renewed calls for a “national conversation about race.” Working under the assumption that more intra- and inter-racial talk about race-related issues is warranted, Dr. Eveland will discuss several of his studies examining inter-racial political talk and talk about race-related issues in America since that time.
Free and open to the Public
