Racial Peace and Justice

February 12 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Dr. Heather Hawn (political science) took several students to Selma and Montgomery, AL in January to see the Edmund Pettus bridge (site of the infamous “Bloody Sunday” attack against peaceful marchers) and the EJI Museum and Memorial which helps us understand the linkages between slavery, Jim Crow, and incarceration today. The trip was quite powerful, to say the least. The students will “pay it forward” with a discussion of what they learned and experienced. This discussion will take place on Tuesday, February 12, at 7pm in Belk Auditorium. It is a community involvement event.
