DIGITAL: "I Can't Breathe": Contemporary Race Relations in the U.S.

Master Class for Students / Free digital admission / Register at bibliothek@amerikahaus.de


This Master Class for Students will take place online via Zoom.

This talk examines race relations in the United States today with a specific focus on the situation of African Americans and the recent controversies over police violence. Were the great achievements of the civil rights movement in the 1960s in vain? What is the social and economic situation of racial minorities in the early 21st century? Is class as much a factor in today’s problems as race? What role does the extremely fragmented organization of police forces in the US play? What are the political implications and consequences of recent conflicts? We will look at these and other questions. As much as possible, political humor and satire will help lighten up these grim topics.

Speaker: Dr. Markus Hünemörder, LMU Munich

Organizer: Bavarian Center for Transatlantic Relations
