Building Bridges Across Difference: A Conversation on Racial Injustice With Crystal Clarke
July 1, 2020 @ 7:30 pm - 8:30 pm
Join us for a series of small group discussions to build bridges and cultivate a better understanding of the issues at stake in this year’s elections. Together, we can wield civic power for change in 2020 and beyond.
Our first conversation is with Crystal Clarke, on Racial Injustice In The United States.
Crystal A. Clarke, Ph.D. is the Director of Project for the Advancement of Our Common Humanity (PACH) and of the Listening Project, a school-based intervention that aims to foster curiosity and connection in and outside of middle school classrooms across New York City. As Director, Dr. Clarke leads the development of this transformative curriculum and the implementation of the project. She received her doctorate from New York University in Social Psychology researching the influences of ethnic-racial socialization and immigrant identity on how young men think about the police. Funded by NYU’s Institute of Human Development and Social Change, she and her interdisciplinary team of researchers worked to further understand American police-minority relations and attitudes towards the police particularly among Black immigrants and African Americans. In 2018 she was selected to be the Student Speaker for the Doctoral Convocation for New York University’s Graduate School of Arts and Science. Dr. Clarke has also instructed the Intergroup Dialogue course on Race and Social Justice at New York University and has served as an adjunct professor of Social Psychology with a particular lens on intergroup relations, social identity and systems of privilege and oppression.
