Life-Long White Racist

As Critical Race Studies (CRS) co-founder Cheryl I. Harris writes in The Nation, “The national narrative of color blindness and racial progress, cultivated over the past several decades, has been ruptured as a result of epic failures in addressing two crises—the Covid-19 pandemic, and the unrelenting carnage of anti-black violence.” Although we at CRS have long been invested in issues of racial justice, we know our task of training the next generation of advocates is more critical than ever.

We continue to supplement a rigorous academic and clinical curriculum with relevant programming, engaging some of the most exciting thinkers, practitioners, and activists around issues of race and justice. And we invite you to join us for some of our upcoming programming.
