The Boston College Forum on Racial Justice in America will provide a meeting place for listening, dialogue, and greater understanding about race and racism in our country, while serving as a catalyst for bridging differences, promoting reconciliation, and encouraging new perspectives.


The Forum will begin by inviting individuals to speak about their experiences of racism—to honor the dignity of those who have suffered, and help increase empathy and understanding. The Forum will sponsor speakers, panels, and seminars to address key issues regarding race, and will encourage scholarly exploration of conditions that result in racism and racist behavior, while suggesting appropriate responses and solutions.
