The Newhouse Center for Global Engagement hosted artists, scholars, technologists and community leaders from Syracuse and South Africa for a virtual conversation hosted by professor Ken Harper.
The discussion investigated the intersections of race and the environment and, specifically, the impacts of current environmental crises on marginalized populations and what it means to collaborate in times of crisis while navigating cultural and socioeconomic differences.
