The Boston College Forum on Racial Justice in America provides 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 invites 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 sponsors speakers, panels, and seminars to address key issues regarding race, and encourages scholarly exploration of conditions that result in racism and racist behavior, while suggesting appropriate responses and solutions.
