Course Description
In this webinar, Professor John Powell talks about how systems thinking and a structural lens can inform our work for racial justice and deepen our understanding of racial disparities. He examines how the interactions of structures and institutions create not only opportunity and deprivation, but also inhabit our ideas and language about race, identity and the self.

Professor John Powell is the Executive Director of the Kirwan Institute for the Study of Race and Ethnicity at the Ohio State University, and Williams Chair in Civil Rights & Civil Liberties at the Moritz College of Law. An internationally recognized authority in the areas of civil rights, civil liberties and issues relating to race, ethnicity, poverty, and the law, he was previously National Legal Director of the American Civil Liberties Union, Founder and Director of the Institute on Race and Poverty at the University of Minnesota, and a cofounder of the Poverty & Race Research Action Council.
