This poster has a dark blue background. On the top is text announcing this as the Annual Bowman lecture on race and public policy. Below that in bold red letters at a slant is the title of the event and below that, in white letters, is the date, time and location for the event as well as where to register. Under that, in light blue letters are the names and institutional affiliations of the five panelists. At the bottom left is a silhouette of a house with a superimposed image of a housing rights protest. At the very bottom are the logos of the two sponsoring institutions with a black background behind.

About the series: This lecture was established to honor Phillip J. Bowman’s contributions to UIC during his tenure as Director of IRRPP and Professor of African American Studies. It features national scholars of race, ethnicity, and public policy who provide timely analysis of issues of critical importance to the field and to communities of color.
