Repairing a Divided America
Open Classroom | Fall 2021 | Race, Hate Crimes, and Reconciliation
Please join the School of Public Policy and Urban Affairs, the College of Social Sciences and Humanities, the College of Arts, Media, and Design, and the Northeastern Humanities Center for this semester’s Open Classroom series. The Fall 2021 Open Classroom will focus on hate crimes, anti-Semitism, anti-Asian discrimination, and on ways of bringing together disparate groups to address discrimination and reconciliation. We will address history, reparations, racial dialogues, and approaches to addressing social justice in America.
