Black Bodies, Black Votes: Post-Election Reflections Panel Discussion

Wednesday, November 11, 2020 | 4:30 PM - 6:00 PM

Virtual Event

What impact will the contentious 2020 U.S. election have on Black people and racial animosity in the U.S. and globally? 

This panel will take place 8 days after the 2020 U.S. Election – what political analysts have called “the most important U.S. election ever” and during a time of great racial reckoning and conflict around the world. The stakes of this election are undeniably high, both nationally and in key races around the country. The days ahead are critical to how our nation begins the racial repair or deepens a growing divide.

The Department of African & American Studies has gathered a panel of top national and international thinkers on race and politics. Each panelist will offer a unique perspective on the meaning of the election and the future of Blackness and the African Diaspora.
