Dismantling Bias Lecture Series

The BLM Movement and the Power of Protest with Dr. Allyson Hobbs

The Dismantling Bias: Antisemitism, White Supremacy, and Inequality Virtual Lecture Series explores the origins of racist ideologies and the construction of bias; examines the evolution and repercussions of antisemitism and white supremacy throughout history; and deconstructs the ways in which stereotypes, misconceptions, and prejudices shape contemporary society and culture.

Led by renowned historians, authors, and activists, the Dismantling Bias Virtual Lecture Series confronts the devastating consequences of racial bias while encouraging viewers to access and challenge their own bias. Through critical conversations and open dialogue, participants will consider their role in the antiracism movement and everyday actions they can take to dismantle inequality.
