Description:

Join the Center for the Study of Diversity and Democracy for the next installment of the Anti-Racism in Thought and Action Speaker and Discussion Series:

Since the murder of George Floyd and the protests that followed, many cultural institutions have had an increased sense of urgency about launching or accelerating racial equity initiatives. However, institutional cultures die hard and the work of creating racial equity and transforming institutional cultures requires more than reactionary urgency. Please join us for a conversation between Makeba Clay (Phillips Collection) and Calinda Lee (National Center for Civil and Human Rights) about what effective racial equity work entails and whether or not institutions are prepared for what they have committed to.

Two members of the Change Makers Review Committee, Steven Adams and Stefanie Hicks, have partnered with Dr. Alvin Tillery in the Center for the Study of Diversity and Democracy to curate the Anti-Racism in Thought and Action Speaker and Discussion Series during the 2020-21 academic year. Scholars from a variety of disciplines will share research that provides transformative insights about the multiple crises of race we navigate in the United States. Each lecture will be followed by an interactive discussion or activity to catalyze meaningful reflection and action directed toward creating an anti-racist campus. The Office of Human Resources is sponsoring this series and invite all Northwestern Faculty and Staff to participate.
