The Evolution of the Racism Sequence, Speaker Series – Apr 20

Posted by University of Pennsylvania on April 13, 2021

More than 50 years ago, Penn’s School of Social Policy & Practice (SP2) introduced the Racism Sequence curriculum—a series of courses that deeply examine the implications of racism for social works services and practices, as well as strategies for addressing institutionalized racism.

As time progressed, so did the need and nature of the Sequence. How have the courses changed and what values have remained the same? What is the future of the Racism Sequence at SP2 and in our communities?

Drawing on a variety of perspectives, the fourth installment of the SP2 Speaker Series welcomes Jeanne Arnold, MSW, Ed.D.Jack Lewis, DSWLCSW, and Amy Hillier, PhD to discuss these questions and their connections and experiences—as both students and instructors—within the SP2 Racism Sequence, as well as what necessary work lies ahead.

This 60-minute session will hosted by Ben Jealous, Visiting Scholar, Annenberg School for Communication, Penn Carey Law School, and School of Social Policy & Practice and President, People for the American Way.

Date and Time: Tuesday, April 20, 12:00 PM – 1:00 PM
