July 18: Dr. Karl Klontz, FDA Epidemiologist, Covid-19 from an Epidemiologist’s Viewpoint (IV). Infection and death rates are down significantly in the US but the pandemic is still a huge threat in other parts of the world. Public accommodations are reopening but new variants of the virus may be more resistant to vaccines, with the possibility of a resurgence. Dr. Klontz will provide an update on the global epidemiology of Covid-19, followed by a potpourri discussion including the effects of vaccines on the pandemic, variants of concern, and challenges ahead.
July 25: Theodore Segal, The Fight for Racial Justice at Duke University. We’ll consider the difficult experience of desegregation at the university from the fall of 1963, when Black undergraduates were first admitted to Duke, through the spring of 1969 when the Black student movement at Duke reached its peak. We will also look at how Duke leaders resisted racial change, even in the face of determined protest. Mr. Segal entered Duke in 1977, and after he retired from a 35-year career in private law practice in 2016, he returned to continue the study Black and white student activism at Duke that he had begun as an undergraduate.
