EJI Launches History of Racial Injustice Online Timeline


EJI is proud to announce the launch of our new online timeline, A History of Racial Injustice. The timeline provides expanded content to complement our A History of Racial Injustice 2013 calendar, including new photos and in-depth information about each of the events profiled in our calendar.

This exciting resource gives you access to all the rich detail we couldn’t fit into our printed calendar. We’re proud to offer this tool for learning more about our nation’s history of racial inequality and economic injustice as part of our newest initiative on race and poverty in America.

The history of racial inequality and economic injustice in the United States has created continuing challenges for all Americans and we believe more must be done to advance our collective goal of equal justice for all. The first calendar and timeline focus on African American history and are part of an EJI series of forthcoming reports and documents that explore the legacy of racial bias in the United States and its continuing impact on contemporary policies and practices.

We hope you will visit our new interactive timeline to further explore the history of racial injustice.
