Join us on Thursday, February 18, 7:00 p.m. Eastern Time, to hear Bob Hunter offer a presentation entitled, “Black Progress and Racial Backlash.”
In her book, White Rage: The Unspoken Truth about the Racial Divide, Carol Anderson argues that racial unrest is often a response to black progress. This presentation by Bob Hunter will explore Anderson’s argument and consider how to intercept this cycle of black progress and white rage.
