Updated: Nov 23, 2021

In this virtual conversation, NYU's Office of Global Inclusion, Diversity, and Strategic Innovation (OGI) hosted Dr. Nell Painter, eminent historian and retired Professor Emerita of American History at Princeton University. The conversation was moderated by Dr. Lisa M. Coleman, SVP, Global Inclusion and Strategic Innovation, and focused on Dr. Painter's New York Time's best-selling publication, The History of White People.

This conversation offers historic and social context surrounding the intersecting realities of race and racism in today's society. Listen and learn more here!
