EJI Releases 2017 History of Racial Injustice CalendarNovember 09, 2016

EJI is pleased to announce the release of our new 2017 calendar, A History of Racial Injustice.

At a time when a more informed discussion of our nation's history of racial inequality is clearly needed, EJI is pleased to announce this year's calendar, which contains hundreds of facts and images about our history that are not well known but are critically important to understanding the history of America.

EJI's calendar is a full-color wall calendar that includes hundreds of historical entries and twelve short essays highlighting historical events and issues in our nation's racial history.

We published the first calendar in 2013 as part of a series of reports and educational materials that explore the legacy of racial bias in the United States and its continuing impact on contemporary policies and practices. Many of today’s issues have been shaped by America’s racial history – the history of racial injustice in particular. The legacy of slavery, racial terror, and legally supported abuse of racial minorities is not well understood. EJI believes that a deeper understanding about our nation’s history of racial injustice is important to addressing contemporary questions of social justice and equality.

Each year, we add more content and new essays to make the calendar a helpful tool for learning more about racial history. Expanded content from A History of Racial Injustice is available in our online timeline.

EJI makes our calendar available at no cost, but donations are greatly appreciated. To request a calendar, please contact [email protected].
