"The series of events, performances and think tanks taking place in Houston over a 15 months period will continue in the spirit of participatory actions, involving the diverse demographic communities in our city. The objective will be to create a platform for sharing cross-cultural viewpoints that can then be compared with the outcomes in our partner cities of Paris and New York and archived as a body of knowledge for use by generations to come."

She explained that the program is designed to prepare and to encourage our students and the community to apply critical thinking skills to the study of how race shapes our society, marginalizes groups, and promotes social discrimination.

April 15, 2014: Center Seminar on "Alligator Horses"
The Center for Critical Race Studies hosted a seminar to discuss Provost Hugetz's recently released film, "Alligator Horses." Co-produced with Rice University's Brian Huberman, "Alligator Horses" describes the 1830s as a liminal period, in which notions of equality, race, and power took shape within the American mind. The participants discussed the role of African American voices in history; the intersectionality between race, class, and gender; and the role of remembering and mourning as a means for promoting healthy race relations.
