31may6:00 pm8:00 pmCampus Rebellion and Plantation Politics:The Continued Search for Racial Equity in U.S. Higher Education

Event Details

There is a resurgence of resistance to the structural racism and whiteness upon which institutions of higher education have been built. In recent years, Black students and their accomplices have generated passionate protests and multiple forms of resistance at over 150 college campuses throughout the country. Accordingly, this panel will explore how multiple forms of campus rebellion, and the strategies universities use to respond to these acts, may reveal a modern conceptualization of “plantation politics.” Panelists include: Bianca C. Williams Ph.D.; Dian Squire, Ph.D.; Frank Tuitt, Ed.D.; Saran Stewart, Ph.D. & William Cross, Ph.D.

We hope you can join us.
