About The Event
This session focuses on examining and dissecting local, state, and federally sponsored Anti-Black and Pro-White laws, policies, and practices which prevailed throughout 20th century America. It explores the personal and political ideologies of American leaders including presidents, and the programs that they, their constituents, and
beneficiaries produced and supported that have led to current-day racial inequities and disparities in the United States. In part three, the content focuses on political, judicial, and legislative policies passed during the administrations of Presidents John F. Kennedy (and the flaws of his Great Society program), Lyndon B. Johnson, Richard Nixon, Gerald Ford, Jimmy Carter, Ronald Reagan, George Bush Sr., Bill Clinton, George Bush, and Barack Obama. It specifically highlights the economic, judicial, and legislative policies and programs which led to the upward mobility and advancements of many White communities throughout the 1960’s through 2000’s; and the legal, systematic, and government-engineered divestment from Black communities (previously White communities) across and throughout the United States of America. The years covered are approximately 1960-Present.
