Popularizing Racial Justice: Building Clarity, Unity and Strategy to Move us Forward.




From Facing Race 2010's closing plenary, held on Saturday September 25, "Popularizing Racial Justice: Building Clarity, Unity and Strategy to Move us Forward."

Amidst a climate of racist populism, how do we popularize racial justice? How can we jumpstart the real race conversation and transformation needed? What are we learning and what do we still need to figure out? What analytical and strategic connections can move us forward together? Key leaders weigh in on the discourse and direction we need.
