‘Hidden in Plain View’

Whether it is people spitting out the word ‘thug’ to describe young black men or the way that we, knowingly or unknowingly, segregate the city, racism, and its lasting effects on the present, plays a big part in our lives. It’s also the latest topic in the Gottschalk lecture series at UofL. Louisville native, UofL alumnus and history professor at the University of Massachusetts-Lowell, Chad Montrie will be speaking. While you may have reservations about another white guy talking about black issues, you can rest assured Montrie knows his shit. He’ll be discussing the 20th-century exclusion of blacks from thousands of U.S. suburbs and towns and then examining the 21st-century impact of that exclusion.
