 On January 15, 2015, The Nation  magazine partnered with the Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture and sponsored a forum that addressed the history of Blacks in America since 1860 and the ongoing problems that they face today.

The event will explored the critical need for a Third Reconstruction in the United States in the face of new Jim Crow efforts to restrict the rights of Black Americans. Moderated by the Schomburg’s Director, Khalil Muhammad, the forum featured Pulitzer Prize–winning journalist and author Isabel Wilkerson, Nation columnist and Columbia law professor Patricia J. Williams, Nation editorial board member and DeWitt Clinton Professor of History at Columbia University Eric Foner, Nation contributing writer and blogger Mychal Denzel Smith and award-winning author and essayist Darryl Pinckney.
