Programs & events

The Center for Racial Justice hosts programs and events open to the Ford School community and the public.

The Masterclass in Activism is a widely advertised event series in which the center's director will be in conversation with noted activists and thought leaders who have made significant marks on the policy landscape. The center will feature two speakers each year, one per semester, to participate in the masterclass series. This fall, we're delighted to welcome Dr. Johnnetta Betsch Cole to deliver the Masterclass in Activism.

Racial Foundations of Public Policy is a fall speaker series and course that focuses on the historical roots and impact of race in shaping public policy as both a disciplinary field and as a course of action. The series will bring in renowned scholars from across the country to deliver virtual presentations. This fall, we're delighted to welcome Dr. Trevon Logan, Dr. Nicole Gonzalez Van Cleve, Dr. William Darity, Dr. Rucker Johnson, and Dr. Jennifer Lee.
