More About the Event

Anti-Black racism persists across social, economic, political, legal, and institutional structures in our society. The purpose of this dialogue is to explore concrete ways that people — individually and collectively — can acknowledge and dismantle their roles in the perpetuation of racist attitudes and actions. We will explore how silence, privilege, microaggressions, and unconscious bias continue to enable anti-Black racism in our institutions and communities. The UN International Decade for People of African Descent (observed 2015-2024) will also be acknowledged.

Panelists: Colette Chapman, Nyabuoy Gatbel, Leroy Hibbert, Arielle Kayabaga, and Malvin Wright
