Throughout the summer, we’ve studied White Fragility: Why It’s So Hard for White People to Talk About Racism by Robin DiAngelo.

This Thursday, we transition slightly to studying The Moynihan Report, one of the most controversial documents of the 20th century and a lightning rod for civil rights activists during the Johnson administration. Moynihan “hope[d] to persuade White House officials that civil rights legislation alone would not produce racial equality,” and while it is best understood in the context of its time, it remains relevant to today’s discussion of why racial inequality persists despite the passage of civil rights legislation.
