Equity Thursdays Series to host talk on racism and immigration in the U.S.

October 18th, 2018
12:00 PM - 2:00 PM

Location
Room 203
Cudd Hall
Tulane University
New Orleans, LA

On Thursday, October 18, join the Community Engagement Advocates, the Tulane University Center for Public Service and the Office of Multicultural Affairs for a talk titled Racism & Immigration in The US as part of the Equity Thursday series.

The conversation around immigration in the United States is arguably as pertinent right now as any time in U.S. history. And yet, immigration has been a constant theme and thread throughout U.S. history, from colonization of indigenous lands, to Westward expansion and “Manifest Destiny”, to the notion of a “Melting Pot.” And while we may learn about certain events in school and popular culture, how much do we really know about the history of racism and immigration? How do these histories connect with and influence our experiences today? How did immigration policies shape how we got here?

We invite participants to join us as we walk together through an Incomplete Timeline of Racism and Immigration, followed by a dialogue.
Lunch will be provided!
