About the Series: The goal of the Legacies of Racism series is to deepen our understanding of the challenges and possibilities of policy efforts to address longstanding racial inequality. These events explore the recent and historic origins of inequalities and ask questions about what it means to try to repair systematic harm done to people and communities.
