FGCU to Host Discussion on 'Race, Immigration and White Supremacy in the Post-Obama Era'

Nov 6, 2017

"Race," "immigration" and "white supremacy" are some of the most frequently used terms in headlines across America in the last couple years, which is why FGCU is hosting a panel discussion this Thursday, Nov. 9 on those very subjects.

Race, Immigration and White Supremacy in the Post-Obama Era is a cross-campus initiative headed by the Office of Community Outreach. J Webb Horton, the office's assistant director, will serve as one of the discussion's moderators.

He joins Gulf Coast Live to discuss his moderator role as opposed to his seat on the panel in past discussions on race on campus.

He is joined by presenters Dr. Jan Meij, the sociology program leader, and Dr. Ted Thornhill, a fellow assistant sociology professor. Both will discuss their upcoming presentation, and Thornhill will talk about the course he's teaching in the spring semester, White Racism, which made national headlines last week.
