A day before completing her doctorate at Harvard, social psychologist Jennifer Eberhardt was pushed against her car, handcuffed and arrested during a traffic stop. Eberhardt, a Stanford professor and MacArthur "genius" grant recipient, now consults with city police departments to address racial bias in everyday interactions. Her new book "Biased” synthesizes psychology research and police body camera data to illuminate how prejudice manifests itself, and how it can be countered. Eberhardt joins Forum to share her findings.
