Race, Place and Perceptions: Making Louisville Home for Us All

Race and perceptions of race have a lot to do with where we live.  Race has no real standing as a biological concept, but for centuries, it has had enormous social power in defining life outcomes.  In this campus and community conversation, hear what some of the most dynamic writers of today have to say about race and place.  This participatory dialogue will build an awareness of racially diverse people’s experiences related to housing. And we will learn more about race and housing from a historical perspective. 

This is a collaboration between the Anne Braden Institute for Social Justice Research, the Muhammad Ali Center, and the Muhammad Ali Institute for Peace and Justice.  This program is in conjunction with the Ali Center's Race exhibit which is on display there September 24, 2016 – January 2, 2017.
