July 13, 2020: Race and Politics: Reflections on a movement and an election

Speaker: Christopher Stout, School of Public Policy, Oregon State University 

This discussion will focus on how Black Lives Matter as a movement arose, its historical antecedents and political ramifications. Christopher Stout will consider why there was a large lull in racial movements in the United States between the Civil Rights Movement and Black Lives Matter, how Black Lives Matter has reshaped American Politics and how the movement is likely to influence the upcoming presidential election.

Stout is an associate professor in the School of Public Policy at Oregon State University and the author of Bringing Race Back In: Black Politicians, Deracialization, and Voting Behavior in the Age of Obama and The Case for Identity Politics: Polarization, Demographic Change, and Racial Appeals.  He teaches courses on the American political system and presidential and congressional politics.
