Recent tragedies have brought increased awareness to issues of systemic racism in our nation today. But racism is not new –which calls for greater understanding of history and identifying approaches to tackle racism.
The ASU Committee for Campus Inclusion hosts the first of a series of important dialogues on systemic racism. Through a moderated panel discussion, we highlight the history of racism in America, what it looks like today, the role of anti-racism, and what we can do as members of the ASU community to tackle systemic racism.
Panelists include sustainability scientist Bryan Brayboy, President’s Professor and Director, Center for Indian Education; Stanlie James, Vice Provost, Inclusion and Community Engagement; Mako Ward, Clinical Assistant Professor and Faculty Head, African and African American Studies, School of Social Transformation. The moderator is Cassandra Aska, Deputy Vice President and Dean of Students and University Chair of Committee for Campus Inclusion.
