When we insist present experiences are unlike any other, we limit opportunities to learn lessons from the past that can inform today’s struggles. Politicians, journalists, friends, and family have used the word “unprecedented” numerous times over the past year to describe experiences during the COVID-19 pandemic. Yet, there is a great deal of precedence and lessons to be learned from past successes and mistakes in how human society has responded to historic moments of crisis.

Moderated by Leslye M. Tinson, (Lecturer in the Departments of Psychology and African American Studies), this interdisciplinary panel of SJSU scholars features Dr. Natalie Boero (Sociology), Dr. Marcelle Dougan (Public Health), and Dr. Soma Sen (Social Work), discussing how history tends to repeat itself, especially in the treatment of marginalized communities.
