  Race and Political Violence in the United States: Historical Perspectives  
(Diversity)

As Americans continue to reflect on the attempted insurrection at the U.S. Capitol on January 6, what lessons can history provide? Violence has been a regrettable but regular feature of U.S. politics, often sparked by struggles over racial equity. Join us online for a wide-ranging conversation exploring intersections of race and political violence at critical historical moments.

Four expert speakers will reflect on how Americans have conceptualized and employed violence in changing political contexts: Black abolitionists' debates about the place of physical force in their movement; the political ramifications of slaveholder violence; the repression of Mexican Americans in the early 20th century; and the racially-charged violence that's marked our own era of Black Lives Matter and resurgent white supremacy.
