Brown University was recently offered the opportunity to exhibit Rosa Parks’ house, which has been under preservation by American artist Ryan Mendoza in Berlin, Germany and is set to return to the US in February 2018. This project grant will support ’The Rosa Parks Project: Race, Memory, and America Today’, an initiative organized by Brown’s Center for the Study of Slavery and Justice (CSSJ), in collaboration with Ryan Mendoza and WaterFire, a public arts organization known for making art accessible to broad audiences. It is an exhibition, regarded by the grantee, of immense importance, symbolizing the Civil Rights Movement. The exhibition will be free and open to the public.

Grants to this Grantee
for a joint program on the New Generators of Inequality: Asset Managers and Private Equity
The Rhodes Center and the Stone Inequality Initiative, both housed at Brown University’s Watson Institute for International and Public Affairs, will partner with the Max Planck Institute for the Study of Societies in Cologne to build a postdoctoral research program focused on the topic of asset management and private equity as a new structure of inequality. The Max Planck Institute is the home of the study of asset manager capitalism. At Brown, the Stone Inequality Initiative considers the inequality driving effects of private equity. The Rhodes Center, also active in research on distributional politics, particularly in regard to climate change, will serve as a bridge for these two research programs.
for general support of Brown University's Population Studies and Training Center
for the BREAD development economics research network's activities on population/reproductive health
The Bureau for Research and Economic Analysis of Development (BREAD) is comprised of renowned economists working on population, poverty, and global development issues. Hewlett Foundation funds would enable African scholars to participate in the full range of BREAD’s activities, making it possible to include young faculty members and senior scientists in discussions of research, policy, and program improvements aimed at the developing world. In each year of the grant, two conferences will be organized, at which innovative research in the economics of population and global development will be presented and discussed. Select African scholars will also have the opportunity to collaborate with one or more BREAD members during extended visits to develop their research and analytical skills.
