Here at UCLA Law, we have been home to a nation-leading Critical Race Studies program for the last 20 years. And right now across the country, a firestorm over Critical Race Theory has exploded. New legislation bans ideas and research designed to combat racism from classrooms and workplace training by labeling them as “divisive” and “anti-American.” What is at the root of this conflict? And what are its consequences? Join our panel of experts for a deeper conversation discussing the origins of Critical Race Theory, a breakdown of the current debate, and a thoughtful analysis of what is at stake.
This event is in partnership with UCLA Law Critical Race Studies, home of the nation's first Critical Race Studies program.
