United Wounds of America: The N-Word...Can I Say It?

When: Wednesday, April 07, 2021 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM

Where: Online (Zoom)

Description:

Person listening to a lecture Many scholars would estimate that in the English language there are more than a million words. In that vast collection of terms, the N-word holds a distinctive position. In one instance, it is an extreme slur that has plagued generations of black for centuries. While at the same, it has become a widespread term of blandishment used by the descendants of the very people who once had to live under its suppressive influence. Its increased popularity has also led to another outcome, an escalation in use by non-black people. Join us for a powerful and informative discussion about this enigmatic word.
