In his inaugural address, President Biden denounced the rise of political extremism and white supremacy, stating: “A cry for racial justice some 400 years in the making moves us. A cry that can’t be any more desperate or any more clear. And now a rise of political extremism, white supremacy, domestic terrorism that we must confront and we will defeat.”
 
In recognition of Black History Month, Harvard Kennedy School Academic Dean Iris Bohnet will moderate a conversation with Dr. Robert Livingston regarding the most effective path for addressing systemic racism. The interview will draw from Professor Livingston’s newly published book The Conversation: How Seeking and Speaking the Truth about Racism Can Radically Transform Individuals and Organizations. The book is neither thesis nor testimonial, but rather a tool in which he lays out concrete steps for making profound and sustainable progress toward greater racial equity.
