Week 9 Lectures 2019

Week Nine :: August 17–25

Exploring Race and Culture in America with Wynton Marsalis and Jazz at Lincoln Center

The intersection of race and culture creates a unique vibrancy to American democracy, often channeling and challenging the ugly effects of racism, bigotry and inequality, past and present. In this week, we examine the different ways that race and culture shape and enrich our society, and how being responsible consumers of culture, regardless of our different backgrounds and tastes, matters to who we are as citizens and as an American community. We open and close the week with renowned trumpeter Wynton Marsalis, who explores race and culture as a testing ground for the principles of American democracy.

Interfaith Lecture Theme :: Exploring Race, Religion, and Culture

It has been observed that racism is one of the most disturbing of historical cultural phenomena – speciously scientific, privileging some, and denying value to segments of the world’s populations. This week will explore how racism became enculturated, and will look for ethical realities, understanding, and cultural healing.
