Black Lives Matter Speaker Series
The Black Lives Matter Speaker Series was created in the summer of 2020 by the Office of Multicultural Affairs and our campus partners 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.
The Black Lives Matter Speaker Series is currently organized by University of Idaho Africana Studies Program along with campus partners. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
