Through a partnership with Spectrum Health Lakeland, Lake Michigan College, and the City of St. Joseph, a three-part virtual panel discussion will explore how historical laws, policies, and practices laid the foundation for today’s racial inequities. The free event, “Hidden History: Understanding the Origins of Racial Inequity” will take place at 7:00 p.m. EDT on April 13, May 11, and June 15, 2021.

Panelists include historians and authors, as well as a journalist and filmmaker, who will share lesser-known and poorly understood episodes in U.S. history from slavery through present day.
