Ideas on Tap: Race, Democracy, and Boundaries of Belonging

Wednesday, February 5, 2020 at 6:00pm

Viking Braggot Co. Southtowne 2490 Willamette Street, Eugene

Quench your thirst—for knowledge and for beer—at Ideas on Tap, the Museum of Natural and Cultural History's monthly pub talk. This month, join University of Oregon political scientist Debra Thompson for Return: Race, Democracy, and the Boundaries of Belonging in North America. Drawing on her connections to Black America as well as Canada, where many enslaved Black Americans fled, Thompson will explore how time and geography influence our understandings of race, inviting us to reconsider ideas of home, belonging, diaspora, and democracy.

Admission is free and food and beverages are available for purchase. Learn more at
