Event Description

Harvard University sociologist Lawrence D. Bobo visits Zócalo to examine how the white racism of today is forging the America of tomorrow.

Nearly two-thirds of Americans say it has become more common for people to express racist or racially insensitive views since the current administration took office. Majorities of Americans, across all demographics, say race relations have worsened in the last two years, and reports of hate crimes are soaring. Are these trends merely temporary, the short-term product of an angry era, unregulated digital media, and divisive political leadership? Or will the resurgence of white hate crimes and racism lead to a deeper shift in how Americans relate to each other?

Moderated by Gregory Rodriguez, Founder and Publisher, Zócalo Public Square.
