In September, ColorLines and its publisher, the Applied Research Center, gathered hundreds of racial justice advocates and change makers in Chicago for our latest Facing Race conference. The featured sessions included Melissa Harris-Perry (formerly Harris-Lacewell), comedian W. Kamau Bell and a panel discussion about the movement's future with heavyweights Van Jones, Tim Wise, Maria Teresa Kumar and ColorLines Publisher Rinku Sen. You can dig into our Facing Race 2010 page to get highlights of those sessions, or head over to to see the full videos.

And get ready for the next gathering, Facing Race 2012 in New York City!
