Violence against people of color has been an ongoing thread in the story of the United States since before it was established as an independent nation. Join this conversation with noted historian Dr. Michael J. Pfeifer (Arts & Sciences, 1991) for an examination of the history of American racial violence and voter suppression, connecting the dots from slavery through the Jim Crow era to current hate crimes and systems of oppression.
