Fall 2018 Bi-Annual Men of Color Enquiry & Student Poster Session

Friday, October 26, 2018 - 11:00am to 1:30pm

University Student Union | Grand Salon

William A Young

Please join us for the Fall 2018 Bi-Annual Men of Color Enquiry & Student Poster Session. The theme for this semester's event is Supporting Men of Color through Collective Consciousness with special guest, acclaimed American actor, William A. Young.

An ever-growing sense of unity and cultural uplift has swept the nation throughout communities of color within the last year. With the progress of the civil rights movement of the 20th century and a resurgence of racial pride emerging from the radical imagining of the hit movie, Black Panther, in the 21st century, communities of color have experienced a jolt of collective consciousness. As such, hope and intent can be grounded in the space and nontraditional platforms we build for our brothers and come to inhabit as sacred. Through a restoration of racial consciousness, cultural centeredness, and collective action, we can forge a new beginning towards racial harmony among our men of color. Join us as we think of and deliberate on ways to support men of color, particularly, Black Men.
