Deep Roots: How Slavery Still Shapes Southern Politics


Monday, February 26, 2018, 12:15pm to 1:30pm


Land Hall (Belfer 400), Harvard Kennedy School

Join the Malcolm Wiener Center for Social Policy's Inequality and Social Policy program for a discussion with Maya Sen, Associate Professor, Harvard Kennedy School. This event is co-sponsored by the Race and American Politics series. 

Race and American Politics is a multidisciplinary series of seminars and roundtable conversations led by Leah Wright Rigueur, Assistant Professor of Public Policy at the Harvard Kennedy School and cosponsored by the Hutchins Center for African and African American Research and the Malcolm Wiener Center for Social Policy. The series will feature academic, practitioner, and journalistic perspectives from across the nation on the most pressing political and social issues related to race in the United States: state-sanctioned violence, protest and social movements, voting rights, political representation, and more. While the series will engage students and the HKS community in conversation to better understand these issues from a variety of disciplines and viewpoints, it is also intended to identify and spark discussion on promising policy solutions and implications for practice.
