Census 2020—like every census since 1790—uses racial categorizations that reflect the prejudices of our time. At the same time, it provides a powerful tool that exposes the impact of racism on income, education, health, home ownership, employment and more for each person living in the United States.
Join us for a conversation with renowned Berkeley faculty discussing how these contested categories impact their research and teaching.
This zoom webinar will be recorded and live streamed to Youtube.
