    Any discussion of race inevitably ends with a glass-half-full-or-half-empty type of question. This sweeping summary, a fitting close to the exhibition, will be delivered by two of the most lauded scholars in their field.

    Camille Charles is Associate Professor of Sociology, Faculty Associate Director, Center for Africana Studies, University of Pennsylvania. Lawrence Bobo is W.E.B. Dubois Professor of Sociology at Harvard.

    This event is cosponsored with the Ellen Stone Belic Institute for the Study of Women and Gender in the Arts and Media, Columbia College Chicago.
