The Intersection of Race, Ethnicity, and Identity

Online Webinar
5:30 p.m.–7:00 p.m., July 1, 2020

The long-standing issues of individual and institutional racial prejudices have been further highlighted by recent unfortunate events affecting Black Americans, including those of African descent. Some of the most prominent of these incidents, including the deaths of Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor and George Floyd, have ignited reactions across the globe. In the renewed discourse around racism, the intersection between race and ethnicity plays a crucial role in our lived and shared identities. The Africa Graduate Club of the University of Notre Dame will hold a panel discussion to examine these complex interconnections and how they come to the fore in our daily experiences, with the goal of proposing viable steps to eliminate racial bias.

This event is open to all.

This event is presented by the University of Notre Dame’s Africa Graduate Club.
