Black Lives Matter Speaker Series

Black Lives Matter Banner

The Office of Multicultural Affairs along with our campus partners are excited to announce the first event of our Black Lives Matter Speaker Series. This will be the first of several keynotes and workshops that the OMA and our campus partners have organized in response to the systemic oppression that Black and African American communities experience in the U.S. The goal of these ongoing events is for our campus and community to listen, engage and take action to dismantle systemic racism in our society.
