GBH, The Boston Globe, NAACP Boston Branch and WORLD Channel have partnered to host a series of free forums beginning this month on the topics of racism and inequality. The series continued on Wednesday, Sept. 23, with "The State of Race: Education," a discussion on how inequities in Massachusetts school systems disproportionately impact communities of color.

Moderated by award-winning journalist and frequent GBH contributor, Dan Lothian, the discussion featured input from Founder & Director, The NET Mentoring Group, Jamal Grant; Professor of Urban Education, University of Wisconsin-Madison, Gloria Ladson-Billings and the Globe's Education Reporter Bianca Vázquez Toness.
