How Did We Get Here? The Hidden Impacts of Racial Disparities on the Well-being of La Crosse and Wisconsin
This talk takes a long look at American history and explores our national ambivalence about diversity and inclusion. We examine the legal and social treatment of Native Americans, enslaved Africans, White Ethnic immigrants (such as the Irish, Italians, and Jews), as well as immigrants and refugees from Asia and Latin America – and how those experiences have led to the racial and ethnic disparities we witness today in La Crosse and Wisconsin.
