Join us on Wednesday, September 22 at 5:00pm ET for a Study Group with IOP Resident Fellow Arnon Mishkin. 

Race and Reaction
One of the over-riding factors behind political polarization is “Race” and different groups’ attitudes to how our society addresses it. It has been called the “Original Sin” of America. Divisions by Race were set in law from the founding of America past the middle of the last century – and it has very much been a part of how both parties have sought to build each of their coalitions. We will talk with Juan Williams, a historian of the Civil Rights movement, and longtime journalist with the Washington Post, NPR, and Fox News.

Arnon will be joined by Juan Williams, Fox News Analyst, The Hill Columnist, and Author of "What the Hell Do You Have to Lose?"
