Seizing Untapped Power in Dangerous Times: Interrogating the Urgency of the Moment in Historical Context
This is a past event.
Wednesday, June 14 at 4:00pm
Join the Center for the Humanities in an Urban Environment and our friends in the Division of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion, the African & African Diaspora Studies Program, and the Office of Social Justice & Inclusion for “Seizing Untapped Power in Dangerous Times: Interrogating the Urgency of the Moment in Historical Context”
The purpose of the teach-in is to acknowledge the various pressures acting upon our moment in time - including, especially, in the State of Florida - to interrogate their historical antecedents, to make visible the various through-lines transgressing time and space leading to the current moment, and to create dialogue about meaningful change, especially in the domains of education and law.
