The Department of Gender and Race Studies will host a one day workshop with presentations to the public in two panels, one in the morning and one in the afternoon by scholars both from UA and several from around the country to discuss the problems and possibilities of race relations today in the country. The morning panel of experts will discuss the current conditions, including the history of the last 50 years, and focus on developing a picture for the audience of what the issues of importance are today. The panel in the afternoon will talk theoretically about what lies in the future, where we need to go, and what type of problems they can see for improving race relations going forward. Panelists will include academics from major research universities around the country as well as several experts from the UA campus.
This event is part of "Through the Doors," a year-long series of activities and events commemorating the 50th anniversary of the desegregation of UA in 1963 and honoring the courage and dedication of the two African American students who enrolled in the University on June 11, 1963 as well as the University's ongoing commitment to change over the past 50 years and to continued progress in the future.
