What Just Happened? Race and Soul Searching after Election 2020

Co-Sponsored by the Center on Race and Social Problems and the Office of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion.

Despite the outcome of the 2020 Election, Black people and other people of color are grappling with the possibility that racially hostile politics are not a major deterrent to electoral success in the United States. The implications for racial justice are staggering. Join us for this special town hall for Pitt community members as we process and reflect on the events, outcomes, and implications of this narrow presidential election for the fight against anti-Black racism and for racial justice more broadly, across campus and across the country.

Chris Bonneau - Professor, Political Science | President of the University Senate, University of Pittsburgh
