“Race, Class and American Democracy”

This program rescheduled from January due to weather

May Scholar’s Gild Discussion

Tuesday, May 20; 7:30 PM

Lower Gild Hall

“Race, Class and American Democracy”

                Along lines of Class, we are now more unequal economically than at any earlier point in American History. Along lines of Race, we are now more segregated than we were at the time of the Brown v Board of Education decision. Historically, the social conditions of race and class have been inseparably intertwined, typically working to undermine the fullest expression of America’s democratic possibilities.

                Are you concerned – or even just curious, interested — in these current patterns of inequality, and the consequent deleterious effects on the scope and character of American democracy? Would you like to learn and/or discuss how these social realities have evolved over time? Are there viable political options available to begin to address more fully and successfully these worsening conditions along lines of race and class?

                If you are concerned or simply interested – join the Scholar’s Gild discussion scheduled for Tuesday, May 20, in the Lower Gild Hall.  John Martin will lead the discussion on these and related matters.
