Civil Rights Day: The WE in Identity Politics

The Center for Civic Engagement presents Civil Rights Day: The WE in Identity Politics  presented in commemoration of Black History Month. Politics centered around narrow interests and perspectives can sometimes seem at odds with broad-based movements and alliances of the past. This year’s Civil Rights Day will focus on the ways in which identity politics appeals to unaddressed grievances of the decades since the Civil Rights struggle as well as to newer identity-based movements such as the struggle for LGBTQ+ rights; the ways in which it has informed and transformed broad-based alliances; and how it has responded to criticisms.
