Summer 2020 Dialogue Series
How Do We Talk About Race?
The death of black men and women due to police violence and deep rooted systemic racism have resulted in protests across the country (and the world). As a result, many in the campus community may be struggling to identify how they feel, provide support to others, engage with others on social media, talk with their family and friends, or with their coworkers about what is going on and about race.
The Dialogues Program recognizes the importance to listen and share with each other about what is happening right now. And the importance of action. We also understand that the now includes our current context of covid-19 and experiencing a health crisis that has wide ranging ripple effects, as well.
We will be hosting several events this summer, starting with a Livestream Event on June 12th where Dr. Katia Campbell will be moderating a panel of Black scholars from across the University as they discuss, How Do We Talk About What’s Going On?
Also, listen in to Dr. Katia Campbell talk with Dr. Janine Davidson, MSU Denver President, talk about the Dialouges Program here.
We will also be hosting smaller facilitated dialogue sessions over Microsoft Teams as part of the overall series. To learn more about the full series, to go to the Livestream event, or to RSVP for the dialogue sessions, scroll down.
A note on the summer schedule:
Please be aware that the dialogue sessions may have limited capacity. You may be placed on a waitlist if you sign-up after we have reached our capacity for those events. We will let you know if spots open up and if we are able to plan an additional session. We also recognize that there may be a session that you cannot attend. We scheduled the sessions for different days and times in the hopes that there is an option that may work for you.
