Freedom and Race Programming (2017-2018)

Thanks to generous funding from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, the 2017-2018 academic year was focused around a core theme: “Freedom and Race.”

All year we sought to tackle the most vexing questions surrounding the historic struggle of people around the world to be free. We launched our first-ever course and brought the Santa Cruz community together for standing-room-only events featuring the kind of thoughtful dialogue that digs deeper—and lasts longer—than 280 characters.

Here’s what we’ve been up to.
