Black and Blue: A tale of two universities
July 19 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
Universities and the towns that house them have been at the center of racial dialogue in the US. Ref. recent research and writings on the histories Harvard, UVA, Yale and Emory.
Dr. Tim McMillan will discuss the deep influence of colleges and universities on desegregation, discrimination, and memorialization-and how universities like Duke, UNC, and NC Central create racial policy, debate racial theories, and model behavior.
Sponsored by the Duke Clinical Research Institute.
