Tonight (Wednesday, Jan. 13) at 9 p.m., James S. Sherman Professor of Government Philip Klinkner will present a webcast titled “Continued Struggles in American Race Relations” on the General Commission on Religion and Race (GCORR) of the Methodist Church website. Registration is necessary, and participants will be able to engage in live conversation with Klinkner following his presentation. The presentation is part of the GCORR “Vital Conversations” series.

In his most recent book The Unsteady March, Klinkner and his coauthor Rogers Smith argued America's record of race relations cannot be categorized as consistent, gradual advancement towards equality but rather as a series of dramatic moments where multiple factors aligned to advance or hinder progress. The book was the winner of the W.E.B. Du Bois Institute's Horace Mann Bond Book Award and was named as a semifinalist for the 2000 Robert F. Kennedy Book Award.

According to its site, GCORR works “toward the goal of eliminating racism while enabling the Methodist Church to become contextually relevant and equitable in ever changing global communities.”
