The City of Iowa City is hosting a Lunch and Learn on Wednesday, Dec. 7, 2016 from noon to 1 p.m. in Emma J. Harvat Hall, 410 E. Washington Street. University of Iowa College of Education Professor Katrina M. Sanders will facilitate the discussion, which is designed to increase cultural competency by exploring race relations throughout American history.
