Commencement Forum: Tricia Rose '93 PhD, "How Structural Racism Works"

IBES 130 (Carmichael Auditorium), 85 Waterman Street, Providence, RI 02912

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. In addition to sharing the outline of the project, Rose and Samuel Rosen '14 will give examples of how it works in everyday life. 

Following the forum, we invite you to CSREA, 96 Waterman Street, to enjoy light refreshments, learn more about our programs and initiatives, and view our student-curated exhibit, “The Body As Site Of,” which focuses on the complexity of identity and features four contemporary artists of color. (10:00 am - 12:00 pm)


Tricia Rose '93 PhD , Director of CSREA, Chancellor's Professor of Africana Studies
