Overcoming Racism to Build a True Democracy: Two Authors Share the Way Forward


Thursday, November 18, 2021, 4:00pm to 5:00pm


Online event, registration required

Confronting racism directly and building a fully inclusive democracy are completely intertwined. Two authors with strong history in the democracy movement have recently written forcefully and personally on the subject. Heather McGhee served as President of Demos before writing the New York Times bestseller The Sum of Us, and Theodore Johnson, after serving twenty years in the military, is the Director of the Fellows Program at the Brennan Center for Justice and the author of the just-published When the Stars Begin to Fall. Harvard Law Professor Guy Uriel-Charles will engage with them on their experiences, their arguments, and how they see the way forward.
