The death of George Floyd has sparked a global movement denouncing the racism that permeates much of our lives. As part of our commitment to providing an inclusive environment where we can learn from each other, UMKC is holding a series of critical conversations addressing systemic racism in the United States. The panel discussions feature UMKC faculty, staff, students and community leaders who will enlighten, educate and explore the causes and potential cures for racism.

Politics and the State of Black and Brown America is the seventh discussion in the Critical Conversations series, sponsored by the office of UMKC Chancellor Mauli Agrawal and the Division of Diversity and Inclusion.

Moderators Gary O’Bannon, executive-in-residence at the UMKC Henry W. Bloch School of Management, and Charisma Sewell, a senior at UMKC, will lead a conversation exploring the political landscape for Black and Brown Americans and help chart a way forward.
