Center for Social Solutions


Earl Lewis Participates in OAH Annual Summit

Earl Lewis will give opening remarks to "From Chattel Slavery to the Third Slavery" roundtable discussion during the Organization of American Historians 2021 Annual Meeting.

A Look Back : Discrimination against Asian American, Pacific Islander (AAPI) communities

In support of recent movements to combat Asian American, Pacific Islander (AAPI) discrimination, we take a look back at the legacy of the AAPI diaspora in the U.S. and ways to support AAPI communities today.

The Center for Social Solutions (CSS) fosters research and collaborations that diagnose and solve critical social problems. We believe these solutions rely on diverse perspectives that account for the multi-faceted root causes of these issues. Our four founding initiatives—diversity, slavery, water access, and the future of work—approach different aspects of the equality that we believe is necessary to advance as a prosperous democratic society.
