This Isn’t for You

The recent killings of George Floyd, Rayshard Brooks, Breonna Taylor, and Ahmaud Arbery, along with other incidents of racist violence, have shined a spotlight on the painful reality that many in our community have long been aware of: the enduring legacy of racism.

In an effort to amplify the messages of the protests, Penn Arts & Sciences presents a special series: What Happens to a Dream Deferred? 60-Second Lectures on Racial Injustice. This set of short talks spotlights the history and contemporary manifestations of racism in the U.S., Black lives and culture, and the range of factors that have contributed to this moment.
