This was a fantastic opportunity to hear about the work that so many people are involved in but especially our faculty. I would look forward to an opportunity for a longer discussion, perhaps even a seminar on these topics that interested staff and maybe those working in D&I could attend to learn even more about the history of race in our country and its continuing implications.

Thank you!

Will people who are working at this time, who can't just leave work be able to watch the discussion?
