A Congressional Conversation on Race and Justice in America

Members of the Congressional Black Caucus – including House Majority Whip Congressman James E. Clyburn (D-SC), Congresswoman Barbara Lee (D-CA), Congressman Emanuel Cleaver, II (D-MO), Congresswoman Terri Sewell (D-AL) – join the Institute of Politics and Global Affairs to the Black Lives Matter movement, police reform, and the history of race and justice in America.

We delve into perspectives by Members of Congress on policies which have brought us to the present crises including economic, law enforcement and justice inequities; as well as meaningful solutions. The event was held June 15, 2020 and moderated by Basil Smikle Jr. PhD., Political Commentator and Lecturer at Columbia University, ILR ’93.
