Policy and a Pint: Minnesota and Race in the 21st Century

On a special Martin Luther King Day edition of Policy and a Pint, we'll have a conversation about race in Minnesota and in America at large — where we've been, and where we're going. We’ve made progress since the civil rights struggles the 1960s, but where do we want to be in the 21st century? We’ll go beyond racial disparities and the achievement gap to real-world questions about how to bring about King’s dream of economic justice, and how we want today's more diverse Minnesota to evolve and thrive.

Join host Steve Seel and guests Nekima Levy-Pounds, Director of the Community Justice Project at the University of St. Thomas School of Law; Antonio Cardona, Director of the Urban Institute for Service and Learning; and Chris Stewart, Executive Director at the African American Leadership Forum.

Doors open at 5:30 p.m., program begins at 6 p.m.

Policy and a Pint is presented by 89.3 The Current and The Citizens League, with support from Target Corporation.
