Race & Regionalism Conference 2005

The  Race & Regionalism Conference 2005 took place in downtown Minneapolis May 6-7, 2005. The conference was a full two-day event. The conference, supported by the Ford Foundation and the University of Minnesota Law School, was an opportunity to explore new legal and empirical scholarship about race and the regions and frankly discuss the possibility of coalitions for regional reform among people of all races. Blacks, whites, Latinos and others met to discuss the growing policy and legal framework that shapes our understanding of racial dynamics in regional affairs.
