Work in Black and White: Imagining a Just Racial Future
January 25 @ 4:00 pm
The Institute for the Study of Global Racial Justice is holding a book talk at 4 p.m. on Wednesday, January 25, 2023, in New Brunswick.
The event, “Work in Black and White: Imagining a Just Racial Future,” is part of the institute’s Black Bodies, Black Health project. Enobong (Anna) Branch, Rutgers’ senior vice president for equity and a professor of sociology, will discuss the book she co-authored with Caroline Hanley, titled Work in Black and White: Striving for the American Dream. The talk will be moderated by Michelle Stephens, founding and executive director of the Institute for the Study of Global Racial Justice and a professor of English and Latino and Caribbean studies. Both Branch and Stephens are core faculty members of Rutgers Global Health Institute.
From the event description: “The Black body was brought to America to labor. We cannot imagine a just racial future without reckoning with how race continues to shape work and well-being.”
