-- The John Hope Franklin Center (JHFC) and the Duke Center for International and Global Studies (DUCIGS) are launching the 2020/2021 Wednesdays at the Center series virtually. The Wednesdays at the Center series, the John Hope Franklin Center, and the international area study centers in DUCIGS have worked in the past to address issues of racism, inequality, and marginalization both globally and locally. This year, we will intensify our focus on anti-racism under the rubric: JHF | Global Anti-Racism (histories of action).
