About the JHU Forums on Race in America
In the spring of 2015, turmoil in cities across the country and here in Baltimore sparked important conversations on our campuses about racial inequality and deep divisions that exist in our society. The products of institutionalized racism, police brutality, mass incarceration, separate and unequal schools, and an ever-growing wealth gap between black and white Americans cause pain and frustration for many of our faculty, staff, and students, and the wider Baltimore community. Discordant views about race in our nation fuel passionate debates in our classrooms, department meetings, and public spaces.
In keeping with our commitment to diversity, community service, inclusion, and academic freedom, the Johns Hopkins University presents the JHU Forums on Race in America.
