Fifty years after the Civil Rights March in Washington DC and the “dream” of Martin Luther King, thirty years after the “March for Equality and against Racism” in France, Diallo follows a group of young Americans who come to France to examine the issues of race, diversity, human rights, through meetings with political personalities, expat African Americans, and local community activists.
This is the first film of a journalist who has become one of the most influential public personalities in France about issues concerned with minority rights, Black Lives Matter, police brutality, and racial equality. Diallo now writes for TheNew York Times.

Michael Rebell, Professor of Law and Educational Practice Education Policy
In Flunking Democracy, Michael A. Rebell makes the case that the decline of civic participation is not a recent problem, but rather that for generations now, America’s schools have systematically failed to prepare students to be capable citizens. Rebell analyzes the causes of this failure, provides a detailed analysis of what we know about how to prepare students for productive citizenship, and considers examples of best practices.

"As former slaves struggled to become citizens, they redefined citizenship for all Americans. Birthright Citizens is their story." Martha S. Jones
Birthright Citizens: A History of Race and Rights in AntebellumAmerica explores the history of Birthright citizenship in the United States, particularly, how African American activists radically transformed the terms of citizenship for all Americans. Join us for an engaging conversation with Dr. Jones as we explore constitutional history, history of activism and our current state of affairs.
Please join us for a book talk and discussion with Dr. Nicole Furlonge, Klingenstein Family Chair Professor of Practice Director of the Klingenstein Center Teachers College Columbia University. Dr. Furlonge will lead a discussion centered around the art of active listening, particularly in relation to how we engage race, gender, and class differences. Furthermore, she makes the argument that as active listeners, we might be more effective audiences for each other.
Dr. Furlonge is the author of Race Sounds: The Art of Listening in African American Literature. She earned her Ph.D. in English from the University of Pennsylvania. Currently, Dr. Furlonge’s research examines the intersections between listening, cognitive neuroscience, cultural competency, school leadership and adult learning.
