Racism in America: Where do we go from here?
Guest Facilitators: Alan Singer, PhD, Hofstra University with April Francis, Lawrence Road Middle School social studies teacher, Uniondale, NY
Ferguson, Missouri, Staten Island, New York, Cleveland, Ohio, North Charleston, South Carolina, McKinney, Texas and the Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church. Why does racism continue in America 150 years after the end of slavery in the United States and more than fifty years after the March on Washington? We need to consider the question asked by Reverend Martin Luther King, Jr. in 1967, “Where do we go from here?”
