Embedded within the American social, political, and economic systems are various forms of structural violences. The Center for the Study of Slavery and Justice's series This Is America explores how these structures and systems are rooted in anti-Black racism.

This panel follows an October 2020 conversation that explored the historical roots of voter suppression and its impact on the November presidential election [click here to watch the recording].
