Event Details

Although race and identity always have shaped U.S. politics, they reemerged five years ago in what was supposed to be Obama’s post-racial America with new intensity, a political pivot and the unapologetic driver of Donald Trump’s unexpected victory.

But the reenergized racial forces that propelled Trump to the White House did not spring out of a vacuum. The crowd-pleasing candidate merely marshaled spirits unleashed half a century ago in what was a culmination of the so-called “Southern strategy,” the Republicans’ to push race and identity to the political forefront. In its seventh show of the season, a panel of nationally known voices will discuss the role of race in American politics and how identity issues are shaping our daily lives.
