Race and Politics: An Open Discussion

by Kathleen McCoy  |   

Monday, Nov. 3, 7-9 pm
Consortium Library, Room 307

Barack Obama and John McCain have avoided talking about race for the most part, but their supporters and surrogates have engaged in racial politics across the country to the benefit and dismay of the candidates as well as the voters. Join us for an open discussion on this "difficult dialogue." We will raise challenging questions such as: what is the role of race in politics, why are we so hesitant to talk about it, is it appropriate to talk about it and will the issue of race affect the outcome of the 2008 Presidential election?

This discussion is open to students, faculty and the public at large, and will be facilitated by Political Science professors Kimberly Pace and April Susky. Come openly express your thoughts on this topic. Co-sponsored by the Center for Advancing Faculty Excellence, the Political Science Department, and the UAA/APU Engaging Controversy Project.
