Healing our Divided Society: Investing in America Fifty Years After the Kerner Report

  • 800 21st Street Northwest Washington, DC, 20052 United States (map)

Full Event from 8:30am to 11:45pm.

Fifty years ago this March, the Kerner Commission, appointed by President Lyndon Johnson, issued a seminal report on racial division and disparities in the United States. The report was produced in response to civil unrest that raged across the country. In the 1968 report, the commission concluded that, “Our nation is moving toward two societies, one black, one white—separate and unequal.” Today, many of the same issues plague the country, and concerns over civil rights, racial division, and racial disparities are, in many ways, more pressing than ever.
