University of Denver’s Diversity Summit: Making Black Lives Matter in Higher Education

The Office of Diversity and Inclusion at DU is hosting a series of panels during DU’s annual Diversity Summit. Here is a quick preview of our time together:

Morning Panel

Radical Honesty, Resistance, and Self Care in TWIs: Navigating the intersections of Race, Identity, and Patriarchy in these Challenging Times

During this session, panelists will share personal narratives on their individual and collective lived experiences related to engaging in resistance and self-care as they navigate traditionally White higher education institutions.

Lunch Meeting

Colorado Association of Blacks in Higher Education Meeting

Afternoon Panel

Campus Rebellions and Plantation Politics: The Continued Search for Peace, Justice, and Inclusive Communities in Higher Education

There is a resurgence of resistance to the racism and whiteness upon which institutions have been built. This panel presentation focuses on the parallels between historic plantation life, universities, and the protests within the Movement for Black Lives and offers an opportunity for participants to dream up emancipatory futures in the continued struggle for racial equity in U.S. higher education.
