Project Description

Changing the Legacy of Race

More than half a century after the Civil Rights movement challenged basic legal and social segregation in the United States, we see dramatic disparities between African Americans, Latinxs,  and other racial and ethnic groups in almost all areas of life and experience, including education, housing, health, employment, and representation in most fields of endeavor.  The former head of the National Endowment for the Humanities has called on state humanities organizations to encourage conversations~ using the opportunities offered by a humanities perspective~ about the enduring and perplexing legacies of race and ethnicity that continue an American tradition of suffering, vulnerability, and injustice.  Colorado Humanities staff works with local partners to plan, design and implement a conversation series relevant to their communities.
