How Can We Do Better? Creating a More Just and Inclusive Future. Program 1
Black Lives Matter and Anti-racism in Higher Education
With the recent murders of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, and Ahmaud Arbery, the movement for Black lives and against racist policing has taken off in the United States and around the world. Rightfully so, our country is reckoning with its long history of systemic racism and white supremacy. Join the Queens Memory Project for an online discussion with scholars and members of the Queens College community about the historical context of racism in the United States and in the educational system, and what we can do now to create positive change for current and future generations.
All are welcome to attend. This program will be broadcast live on the Queens Memory Facebook Main Page: https://www.facebook.com/queensmemory/
