The previously scheduled September ERC movie, Black Panther, has been postponed. It will be shown at a later time TBA. ERC will instead screen a talk by Prof. Ibram Kendi, author of the book, Stamped from the Beginning: The Definitive History of Racist Ideas in America. The talk is a production by the National History Center in cooperation with the Woodrow Wilson Center’s History and Public Policy Program in Washington D.C.
Prof. Kendi talks about his book and explains how Donald Trump followed Barrack Obama to the White House, how racism is produced and consumed, how racist ideas are part and parcel of our everyday language and much more. The video of the talk will be followed by a group discussion.
