The next two days featured an assortment of panels that critically analyzed the pursuit of radical democracy in the age of Obama and current racial, economic and health disparities, as well as evening keynotes by Massachusetts Institute of Technology computer science professor Fox Harrell on race and digital media, and by Boston University sociologist Ruha Benjamin on race, crime and punishment in the 21st century.
