Join us for Linked Fates, Linked Futures?: Re-envisioning African American and Asian American Relations on Wednesday, October 20 from 3:30-5:00 pm.  Americans are often pitted against one another, and their relations framed as conflictual. Join us for an important conversation in which we move beyond racial tropes to discuss the complexity of Black-Asian relations in the context of the new culture war on affirmative action and the rise of anti-Asian hate. Vishakha N. Desai, Senior Advisor for Global Affairs, Office of the President will moderate the conversation among panelists:

- Jennifer Lee, Julian Clarence Levi Professor of Social Sciences, Department of Sociology
- Kendall Thomas, Nash Professor of Law, Columbia School of Law

There will be a Q&A following the discussion. Registration is required. RSVP here.
