Dr. Hutchinson will be appearing at the American Humanism Association’s 74th Annual Conference’s Afternoon Plenary: Panel: Humanism & Race.
Race continues to matter in the United States. The examples of this reality are pressing and graphic. While humanists lament the poor approach of the religious regarding discourse on race and accompanying racism, less prevalent has been sustained and productive conversation within humanist circles concerning the nature and meaning of race within the humanist movement. This panel is meant as a push toward this type of exchange on how the humanist movement has addressed race—its successes and failures—and how it might do so in more productive ways.
