Title

“Race and the University: A Roundtable”

Description

“Race and the University: A Roundtable” explored how the concepts of race and racism have molded the American Higher Education system. Dr. Marcia Chatelain from Georgetown University, and Ms. Jasmin Howard from Michigan State University joined the panel alongside Dr. Patricia Lott, and Mayor Aidsand Wright-Riggins of Collegeville on October 22, 2019 in Musser Auditorium. Facilitated by Dr. Susanna Throop, chair of the Ursinus College History department, the panelist discussed systemic forms of oppression both past and present in higher education. Examples include slave labor/capital used to construct Ivy League institutions, colleges and universities often being exempt from discourse on race and class hierarchies, and the Black Campus Movement which fought to undo white supremacy within the higher education system. This Event was sponsored by the Arts & Lecture series and organized by the AAAS program, American Studies, English, And History departments.
