Sterling Professor, Anderson, discussed the latest updates to the Kerner Commission’s findings at a recent event on campus commemorating the 50th anniversary of the report. One of the main reasons for the event was to enlighten people about the 50-year-old report and discuss the 2018 update. Anderson noted, “The truth of the matter is that since slavery, of course, black people have made significant progress, but as a group, they continue to experience bigotry that renders many of them second-class citizens.”
