Event Details

Join us on Friday, December 6 from 12:00 p.m. to 1:30 p.m. in the East Conference Room (4th Floor) at Rackham Graduate School for AIM for DEI. During this monthly meet-up, two faculty will share their perspectives on how technology is being used to create conversations about race. Ketra Armstrong, Associate Dean of Kinesiology and University Diversity and Social Transformation Professor in Sports Management, will share her experience of leading a Teach-Out on “Free Speech in Sports,” where she found that participants were unlikely to talk about the impact of race on the conversation about athletes taking a knee during the US National Anthem.  Barry Checkoway, Arthur Dunham Collegiate Professor of Social Work and Professor of Urban Planning at the University of Michigan School of Social Work, will discuss his work on the Youth Civil Rights Academy – an initiative that aims to bring youth together, through both face-to-face and online educational experiences, in order to prepare them to be civil rights activists and leaders.

Lunch will be provided. Please register for this event if you plan to attend.
