Racial Injustice: A Day for Learning and Speaking Out at Duquesne
The national conversation about racial injustice moves onto Duquesne's campus for its annual Day of Learning and Speaking Out (DLSO).
The Day for Learning and Speaking Out at Duquesne University will begin at 10 a.m. on Wednesday, March 21, and will include speakers, a film screening, and a series of skits on race and pedagogy. The event will conclude with a special student round table discussion.
"Bringing together faculty, students and community stakeholders, the fourth annual DLSO will highlight systemic racial injustice and anti-racist activism," explained Dr. Kathy Glass, associate English professor and a co-organizer of the event. "In line with the University's commitment to diversity, the DLSO will also feature conversations on race and pedagogy, all in a safe space for learning, discussion, reflection and engagement."
Each of the events is free and open to the public. Visit the Day for Learning and Speaking Out website for more information and to RSVP to specific segments of the event.
