      EVENT DETAILS
      Race and Gender in American Politics

      As a new Congress convenes in Washington, Brooklyn Historical Society and the Social Science Research Council gather a panel of experts to discuss the role that race and gender continue to play in American politics. Christina Greer, Associate Professor of Political Science at Fordham University and author of the book, Black Ethnics: Race, Immigration, and the Pursuit of the American Dream, Tsedale M. Melaku, Postdoctoral Research Fellow at The Graduate Center, CUNY and author of the 2019 forthcoming book You Don't Look Like a Lawyer: Black Women and Systemic Gendered Racism," and Jamila Michener, author of Fragmented Democracy: Medicaid, Federalism, and Unequal Politics, will reflect on the implications of the midterm elections, given the successes (and setbacks) of women and people of color as candidates, and the evolving nature of participation and representation in American politics. Moderated by Alexis Grenell, co-founder of Pythia Public and regular contributor to the New York Daily News. Part of the ongoing programming collaboration between BHS and the Social Science Research Council.
