What do the stories that people pass down tell us about our cultures and communities, about the past and even the future? What role does storytelling play in preserving local histories? What possibilities do multilingual storytelling hold for exploring histories and identities?
This presentation shares ideas from Professor Rose's on-going research project, which aims to make accessible to the public what structural racism is and how it works in society. The project examines the connections between policies and practices in housing, education and other key spheres of society to reveal the intersectional and compounding effects of systemic discrimination as a significant force in American society today.
