Events of the past year have brought issues of systemic racial inequality back into focus in the U.S. Disparities in access to education and healthcare, economic investment and opportunity, as well as treatment by police and the criminal justice system have returned to the national discourse with an urgency not experienced since the Civil Rights Movement of the 1960s. But how do international students, whose experiences are not informed by the U.S. context, make sense of these issues? Who on campus helps them to navigate these racial conversations? Be part of this conversation on Feb 19.
