I was watching today on C-Span2 BookTV show from Cambridge, Mass. a panel discussion related to social injustice targeting racism. Three primary authors from the African-American community discussed the various issues related to the criminal justice system, Black Lives Matter, inequality, and institutional and ideology racism. These esteemed authors are part of the faculty at Harvard University.
The authors are: Race and Power in America Tommie Shelby, author of Dark Ghettos, Elizabeth Hinton, author of The War on Poverty, and Khalil Gibran Muhammad, author of The Condemnation of Blackness, participated in a discussion on issues of race and structural injustice. The discussion was moderated by Professor Danielle Allen.
What is social inequality? Why does it continue to thrive within our society?
How as a society and an individual can we change this social phenomenon?
Is it even possible?
