Special Online Lecture
This event is free and available to the public. OLLI membership is not required.

How does information impact opinions and voting behavior in the case of white liberal progressives? Specifically, does exposure to racial wealth gap data lead to support by white liberals for affirmative action, reparations, and similar programs? These and related issues will be explored.

Speaker Vincent Hutchings is the Hanes Walton Jr. Collegiate Professor of Political Science at UM and a Research Professor at the Institute for Social Research. He received his PhD in 1997 from the University of California, Los Angeles. His research examines the ways in which political campaigns and the media frame information about racial issues in order to activate and make politically relevant the voters’ sympathies and/or antipathies for particular racial groups.
