Building Multiracial Democracy in the American West

Lessons from Western Pasts
Wednesday, April 7, 2021 - 2:00pm

This panel of scholars will address how the American West has served as a crucible for broader histories of multiracial democracy across the continent. Drawing from their own historical work, panelists will discuss distinct but overlapping histories of different communities that inform fractures and alliances today.
