Fifty years after the release of this controversial report, the MCRP journal will evaluate, through the lens of modern critical race theorists, if the same themes still plague the black community, enabling poverty to thrive, and if so, why. Panelists will discuss the shifting notion of "family" throughout the years, the education system, employment, and violence between minorities and law enforcement. This symposium will bring together leading scholars and practitioners that can help break down these overarching topics that are so often discussed in relation to the black community. Come join us for thought-provoking conversation and lively debate on topics that are still relevant to us today.
