Addressing Anti-Blackness on Campus: Implications for Educators and Institutions
In the wake of the killings of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Tony McDade, Ahmaud Arbery and others, educators are determining options for a thoughtful response. At first, school superintendents and college presidents responded by releasing public statements to their campus communities. But public statements in and of themselves are meaningless without thoughtful action that addresses the pervasive real and symbolic violence against Black communities. In this webinar, the presenters will address tangible strategies for addressing anti-Blackness in schools, colleges, and universities. All educators and institutions looking for concrete strategies and next steps should attend.
Facilitators: Dr. Frank Harris III. Dr. Regina Stanback Stroud, Dr. J. Luke Wood and Lasana HotepRetrieve Recording

Women of Color Need Courageous Allies in the Academy
Navigating race and gender in the academy can be tricky. Often, Black women and White women find themselves in situations where knowing the best thing to do or say is not always easy or apparent. Sometimes we are silent or fail to act because we are uncertain how to respond in a way that isn’t inappropriate or offensive or even whether we should respond in these types of situations.
The webinar, Women of Color Need Courageous Allies in the Academy: An Open Dialogue with White and Black Women, featured six panelists — three Black and three White — who represent a variety of perspectives across higher education.
