Black Lives Matter Series 2015/2016

February 09, 2016

Black Lives Matter is arguably one of the most significant social movements of our day. The Ethnic Studies Program is sponsoring a series this year to discuss various aspects of this movement. Over the course of the year, we will hold four panel discussions that bring together academics, activists and students to examine the BLM movement from the perspectives of politics, history, education and philosophy.
