On April 7th and 8th, The Center on Community Philanthropy at the Clinton School of Public Service hosted “Pathways to Racial Healing and Equity in the American South: A Community Philanthropy Strategy“, a two-day conference focused on the issues of race and equity.
On Thursday morning, Chancellor Anderson participated in a panel discussion that focused on structural racism. Dr. David Williams of Harvard University was the keynote speaker. Dr. Charlotte Lewellen-Williams, Director of the Center on Community Philanthropy, told KUAR public radio, “We wanted to create an opportunity to have deliberate, purposeful, and, in some instances uncomfortable conversations, about this issue of race and privilege. Yet, we are having these discussions in a way that does not evoke fear, or anger, so we have the meaningful fact-based conversations that help us all move forward.”
