Seeing the Unseen: Pursuing Equity During COVID-19

Join the Facing History community for a special series of engaging and thought-provoking online conversations about what it means to face history now. For the second conversation in this series, award-winning writer for The New Yorker Dr. Jelani Cobb discusses how the inequities now laid bare reveal our history of devaluing our fellow citizens - nurses, grocery store clerks, transportation workers, teachers -  who we now acknowledge as heroes on the frontlines of this pandemic.
