About the Series: The goal of the Legacies of Racism series is to deepen our understanding of the challenges and possibilities of policy efforts to address longstanding racial inequality. These events explore the recent and historic origins of inequalities and ask questions about what it means to try to repair systematic harm done to people and communities.

About the State of Racial Justice in Chicago Project: The State of Racial Justice in Chicago Project provides a comprehensive picture of the inequities and changing conditions that racial and ethnic groups in Chicago face in the last half century. Events, presentations, and reports produced in conjunction with this project provide accessible data and analysis on how racial and ethnic groups in Chicago are faring in relation to housing, economics, education, justice, and health and are meant as a resource for the development of new engaged research projects and policy solutions.
