This roundtable discussion will consider how the racial uprising in the aftermath of the deaths of George Floyd and Breonna Taylor, on-going police violence and social unrest, a possible shift in race-consciousness among White voters, the selection of Kamala Harris as the Democratic vice-presidential candidate and the battle to replace Justice Ginsburg may impact the election and our democracy more broadly. In addition, the panelists will engage President Trump’s attempt to “cancel” Critical Race Theory and anti-racism initiatives.
