If race is a social construct, why does it matter? Join Kathy Taylor, Professor of Legal Studies and Co-chair for the Center of Racial Dialogue and Communal Transformation as she explores race and its effect on our society. Professor Taylor will use the widely acclaimed documentary Race: The Power of an Illusion, to discuss how the power of race is used within our institutions and laws.
