Join CAAAS (Center for African and African American Studies) on August 26 for “Dreams Deferred or Doomed - A Future Where Black Lives Matter?”

"How do we really know that God cares when Black people are still getting killed? How long do we have to wait for the justice of God?" That stunning question posed by her son inspired the Very Rev. Kelly Brown Douglas to write her latest book, "Resurrection Hope: A Future Where Black Lives Matter."

Join us next Thursday, Aug. 26, as Douglas explores this line of inquiry during an event sponsored by our Center for African and African American Studies to commemorate the 58th anniversary of the March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom. Register today: https://bit.ly/CAAAS-MLK-event

The death of George Floyd has fueled outrage not only in the United States but across the globe. In Paris, this summer marchers took to the streets to denounce the exoneration of three law enforcement officers in the 2016 death of 24-year-old Adama Traoré, the French-born son of Malian immigrants.

You are invited to join Professor Jacqueline Couti, for a panel discussion this Friday, Sept. 25, at 4 p.m. that will examine the global nature of racism and structures of oppression.

In 2015, Rutgers University launched the Scarlet and Black Project to investigate the university's historic ties to slavery, Native American dispossession and racial injustice. Under the direction of two distinguished historians, professor Marisa Fuentes and professor Deborah Gray White, the project has published two volumes of research and is preparing a third.

Please join Rice's Task Force on Slavery, Segregation and Racial Injustice for a special webinar with Fuentes and White to discuss what other universities can learn from the Rutgers story, particularly in a moment of renewed protest and political struggle over the legacies of slavery and dispossession today.
