SPSP Webinar


In the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, the murders of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, and other Black people at the hands of police has brought heightened attention to the longer-standing racism pandemic. SPSP has put together a panel of experts to discuss social psychological perspectives on the racism pandemic: As a field, what do we know about how anti-Blackness operates, what can we do, and what should we do in our communities and our society?
