IGS Co-Director Cristina Mora discusses Latinos and the Future of the U.S. Racial Landscape as the guest lecturer for the 2022 Prytanean Society Homecoming Lecture, held on Friday, September 23rd.
Communities are expected to make up more than 20 percent of the U.S. population over the coming decade. But questions remain about inequality, identity, racial justice, and multiracial democracy. This talk examines how the construction of race and ethnicity in America has historically served as a mechanism for reinforcing Latinx inequality and institutionalized racism more broadly. Drawing on census figures, public opinion, and polling data, we’ll examine how critical Latinx issues are for understanding the racial future of the nation. Missed it? View the recording.
