Join us on Tuesday, April 27, 2021 at 5–6 p.m. to hear Justin Grinage present his research on cultivating anti-racism.

Drawing from a yearlong ethnographic research project, this presentation investigates how Black youth experience, understand, and combat racial trauma stemming from anti-Black racism. In particular, the presentation will illuminate how Black youth used collective processes of resistance to navigate racist school spaces as they also sought to grapple with the deaths of Michael Brown and Tamir Rice. Examining these processes can provide valuable insights for cultivating anti-racism against the backdrop of racial violence and police brutality continuously occurring in schools and communities. Learn more about the moderator and panelists.
