REAL Talk Brown Bag: State Violence

February 09, 12:30-2 p.m.
304 Tolley Humanities Building

REAL Talks: Resisting Exclusion through Activism and Leadership

Moderated by Biko Mandela Gray, to include topics of policing, police brutality, Black Lives Matter, immigration control, and DACA.

In a political climate that is increasingly encouraging exclusionary rhetoric and practices, university communities have to grapple with what it means to be truly committed to creating spaces of inclusion and belonging. The nation’s reckoning (or lack thereof) with racial and gendered violence, economic crisis, exclusionary immigration and foreign policies, and social unrest has directly affected university communities, as well as raised questions about the responsibilities institutions of higher education have in these issues.

Lunch will be provided.

American Sign Language (ASL) Interpretation will be available for the event. Space is limited - please RSVP to Susan Thomas at least a week before the event and include any dietary, accessibility, and accommodation requests.

A collaboration between Cultural Foundations of Education, the Department of English, and the Department of Religion. Supported by the School of Education, Syracuse University Humanities Center, Intergroup Dialogue Program, Office of Multicultural Affairs, and Women's & Gender Studies.
