|This year has marked a significant turning point in the fight against systemic racism in the U.S. We are presenting a panel to discuss and reflect on predominant racist behaviors and their ideological foundations. The dialogue will be led by The New York Times journalist Eduardo Porter, author and racism researcher Federico Navarrete, and Tatiana García, filmmaker and host of the Convoy Network show Negritud, negros con actitud (Blacks, Blacks with Attitude).|
