Straight Talk: The Persistence of Race in Scientific Research
Join us for another amazing, interactive discussion on some of today’s hottest topics lead by our esteemed panel of guests. This conversation between philosophers and scientists will not only interrogate some of the enduring ideologies of race in America but also some of the reasons behind its continued resonance within the scientific community, largely in the field of genetic research.
The Black National Anthem will be performed by Shades of Yale.
