The next Black-Brown Get Down will take place Tuesday, Oct. 3, from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. in the 707 Hub. Student leaders will facilitate a conversation around the topic “Black spaces, Brown spaces, and in between: finding homeplaces on campus.” This month will also feature empanadas from La Masa.
These monthly student-led gatherings are designed to build community, cultivate cultural awareness and foster solidarity among students across racial and ethnic boundaries. Students from ALL racial/ethnic backgrounds are encouraged to participate in the conversation.
Each session explores the challenges and joys of being a student of color and the ways we are all connected, and also features food from local Black- and brown-owned businesses.
Black-Brown Get Downs are sponsored by the Educational Opportunity Program, the Center for Engagement and Inclusion and the Office of Institutional Diversity and Inclusion/Urban Scholars. With questions, please contact Jacki Black, Tamra Keith or JohnRae’ Stowers.
