Trainer: Professor Jonathan Kahn, James E. Kelley Chair in Tort Law, Mitchell Hamline School of Law
What do we risk when we seek the simplicity of a technological diagnosis—and solution—for racism? What do we miss when we locate racism in our biology and our brains rather than in our history and our social practices? This lecture and discussion surrounds the new book by Mitchell Hamline School of Law Professor Jonathan Kahn, Race on the Brain: What Implicit Bias Gets Wrong About the Struggle for Racial Justice. Join Professor Kahn as he discusses the concept of implicit bias and the implications that surround the societal awakening to this idea. Participants will have an opportunity to ask questions and share stories following Professor Kahn’s presentation.
