How Racial Bias Works on Monday at 3:30 PM

How Racial Bias Works and How to Disrupt It
A Ted Talk by Jennifer L. Eberhardt
Monday, June 28 at 3:30  PM
This is the second of our TED Talk discussions.

We are very pleased to have Hank Solomon, a member of Wellesley Neighbors and a member of the Board of Directors lead the discussion for this talk.  

TED talks is an acronym for Technology, Entertainment, Design. TED talks present easy-to-understand information about a wide variety of topics, some new to you.    TED  spreads ideas and widens your horizons.

Our brains create categories to make sense of the world, recognize patterns and make quick decisions. But this ability to categorize also exacts a heavy toll in the form of unconscious bias. In this powerful talk, psychologist Jennifer L. Eberhardt explores how our biases unfairly target Black people at all levels of society, in schools, social media , policing and criminal justice. She discusses how creating points of friction can help us actively interrupt and address this troubling problem.

A social psychologist at Stanford University, Jennifer Eberhardt investigates the consequences of the psychological association between race and crime. Through interdisciplinary collaborations and a wide ranging array of methods - from laboratory studies to novel field experiments -Eberhardt has revealed the startling, and often dispiriting, extent to which racial imagery and judgments suffuse our culture and society, and in particular shape actions and outcomes within the domain of criminal justice.
