Join the Department of History for the return of their Historical Roots of Our Times series, which pairs a History faculty member with a colleague from across campus to discuss a pressing issue from a contemporary perspective. In this installment, History’s Dr. Mark Elliott is joined by Dr. Jeffrey Kaplan, Department of Philosophy. The topic is, “The Plessy Doctrine and the Logic of Racism, Then and Now.”

Their talk will be followed by a Q&A. Students are encouraged to attend!
