CBC Holds “Discussion on Race”

Forum to examine critical role of race in our society; its scientific, historic, legal and socio-cultural role    

Washington D.C. – In the twenty-five years since Rev. Jesse Jackson’s historic run for the presidency, America has witnessed monumental social, cultural and technological changes leading to the election of the first African American president. While some point to these changes as examples that laws and regulations eliminating discrimination and promoting equity are no longer needed, the persistence of racial and ethic disparities underscore their necessity to others.

 

            As the Congressional Black Caucus continues its focus to provide Opportunities for All: Pathways Out of Poverty, the caucus will hold a “Discussion on Race” Tomorrow, Wednesday, November 18, 2009, at 5:30pm in the Capitol Visitors Center on Capitol Hill. The forum will examine the critical role of race in our society; its scientific, historic, legal and socio-cultural role.

 

WHO:             Chairwoman Barbara Lee, the  Congressional Black Caucus Executive    Board and leading thought leaders.

 

 

WHEN:          TOMORROW

                         Wednesday, November 18, 2009

 

TIME:             5:30 to 8 PM

 

WHERE:        Orientation Room North
