Location: Zoom
Category: Virtual

Please join the Detroit Bar Association and Wayne State University Law School Professor Peter Hammer, director of the Damon J. Keith Center for Civil Rights, for this free webinar training.

Professor Hammer will help attendees understand the dynamics of structural racism as an evolving dialectic between belief systems and institutions that have mutated in form from slavery to Jim Crow segregation, to the forms of spatial-structural racism that define Southeast Michigan.

This presentation will define and distinguish the many forms of racism that we confront: express racism, structural racism, spatial racism and forms of implicit bias.

RSVP required. Registrants will receive the Zoom link after RSVP confirmation.
