Khalil Gibran Muhammad

How does the country’s history affect the present — and how can we envision a more just future for everyone?

Join us this month on Justice Matters as host Sushma Raman talks with Dr. Khalil Gibran Muhammad, a noted historian and professor at Harvard Kennedy School, as they discuss the legacy of slavery; the intersection of racism, economic inequality, and criminal justice; and the importance of creating anti-racist institutions.

Dr. Muhammad directs the Institutional Anti-Racism and Accountability Project at the Ash Center at Harvard Kennedy School, is the former director of the Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture — a division of the NY Public Library and the world's leading library and archive of global Black history — and is the award-winning author of The Condemnation of Blackness: Race, Crime, and the Making of Modern Urban America.
