Morgan Stone '00 Day: The Power of Privilege–Race and Capitalism

This year’s Morgan Stone ’00 Day, a full day dedicated to exploring issues of racial justice, brought together local leaders and Lincoln School students and faculty to explore a common theme: The Power of Privilege—Race and Capitalism.

This year’s keynote speaker, Justice Gaines, started off the day exploring issues related to the origin of race in capitalism, and the need to recognize that all issues surrounding capitalism—housing, education, employment, infrastructure, and more—are all connected.

The day progressed with workshops, an open mic hour, a step team performance, and a presenter panel discussion.
