The theme for 2017 MLK Day programming at Bates is Reparations: Addressing Racial Injustices. Despite democracy's lofty principles, racism and racial injustices were embedded in the founding of the U.S. and continue today: segregated housing, vast inequities in health care and education, mass incarceration, widely held implicit associations, the dominance of whiteness as a social norm. Led by professors Michael Rocque, sociology, and Susan Stark, philosophy, this session examines the nature of  reparations and the conditions that produce the need for them.
