Crucial Conversations: The Past

In this discussion, we aim to place race relations and systemic racism in Dallas in historical context. Dallas has a long history of racial inequity and division in education, housing, policing and other sectors that is not often discussed. We will bring this history to light and acknowledge the longstanding structures and policies that still affect communities of color today. We cannot move forward until we understand our historical foundations.

About the Series
Join the Dallas Holocaust and Human Rights Museum for a four-part program series on race and racism in our community. Through this series of virtual public programs, we hope to foster an increased understanding of racism in both a historical and contemporary context and an awareness of concrete steps that can be taken to disrupt systemic racism. For these conversations, we will convene a diverse group of experts to share their knowledge, their stories, and their ideas.
