Racism and anti-blackness have been bound up since the dawn of America. Untangling this vexing and disempowering dynamic is vital to revitalizing businesses in a time of profound uncertainty and financial contraction. This event is designed to provide engaged BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, and People of Color) and other concerned professionals with the necessary space to connect and share their experiences with about race in the business field.


Discussion will be moderated by Rich Blint, Assistant Professor of Literature, and Director of the Program in Race and Ethnicity at The New School. In order to have a fruitful discussion, we kindly ask that you read the essay Fifth Avenue, Uptown by James Baldwin beforehand.
