While the Black Lives Matter Movement has revived global conversations about racism and systemic inequality, its reception in our region manifested not only in anti-racist solidarity protests but also in pro-nationalist activism, most notably in Russia. Join us to discuss whether the Black Lives Matter movement will have a lasting impact on the struggle against racism and for civil rights and social equality in our region.
