Conservative Conversations with ISI: Glenn Loury and Coleman Hughes

About This Webinar

How Should Conservatives Be Talking About Race?

Explore This Complex Issue with the Help of Two Leading Voices on Race in America

As protests and riots roil the country, the issues of race and racism have taken center stage in the national debate. Phrases like structural racism, white fragility, and anti-racism are everywhere.

How do you make sense of this urgent debate?

And how can you discuss race intelligently and compassionately?

If you follow only the mainstream media, you might think there is only one acceptable approach.

But the issues of racism and anti-racism are far more complex than that. They deserve careful thought, not reductive slogans.

Here to guide you through this profoundly important issue are two of the most intelligent voices on race today: economist Glenn Loury and writer Coleman Hughes.

Glenn Loury is an award-winning economist who became the first black tenured professor of economics in Harvard’s history. Now a professor at Brown University, he is prominent social critic and public intellectual who writes often on racial inequality.

Coleman Hughes writes about race and racism for prominent publications including the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal, National Review, and City Journal. He is a fellow at the Manhattan Institute, and in 2019 he testified before Congress.

The Atlantic recently proclaimed that a “more inclusive anti-racist canon” would include both Loury and Hughes. Find out why in this live conversation on Thursday, September 10, at 7 p.m. ET.

This is your rare opportunity to hear from—and ask questions of—Loury and Hughes in real time.
