“Going Back to Go Forward” presented by Author Jacqueline Battalora

Wednesday November 20, 2019

Green Bay Campus, SC130

1:00 PM - 2:00 PM

Why does a former Chicago cop think it’s important to know that the term “white people” didn’t exist in America as a matter of law until 1681? What social and economic forces in colonial America invented a category of human beings with rights denied to non-whites? And why does it still matter?

Join attorney, sociology professor, and former police officer Jacqueline Battalora as she explains “Going Back to Go Forward: Where, when, how, and why the human category called ‘white people’ was first utilized.”
