Summit on Race in America
The LBJ Foundation is hosting The Summit on Race in America from April 8-10, 2019. The summit, at the LBJ Presidential Library on the University of Texas at Austin campus, explores America’s continuing racial divide and struggle for racial equality to foster a deeper understanding of the challenges facing the country. Through conversations, performances, film clips, and presentations, the Summit is examining voting rights, immigration, movement building, economic empowerment, and the portrayal of race through the media. Speakers include civil rights leaders such as former UN Ambassador Andrew Young; longtime farm worker rights advocate Dolores Huerta; activists such as Brittany Packnett, co-founder of Campaign Zero to end police violence; and Motown music legends. The Summit precedes a new LBJ Library exhibit, Motown: The Sound of Young America.
