Creating a Space for Conversation and Support: A Wayne State Community Virtual Dialogue on Race  

Warning Icon This event is in the past.

Date: August 31, 2020
Time: 5:00 p.m. - 7:00 p.m.
Location: Online
Category: Virtual

The shooting of Jacob Blake by Kenosha Wisconsin police just three months after the police killing of George Floyd has reopened a national wound that has not had time to heal. While Mr. Blake was not killed by the seven shots in his back, his life—nor the lives of his children who witnessed the shooting—will never be the same. We abhor this ongoing violence against the Black community and grieve its impact on current and future generations.


The Wayne State Community will once again gather in dialogue circles on Monday, August 31 at 5:00 p.m. to discuss our feelings about these traumatic issues, as well as strategize how we can collectively take action to make Wayne State a more welcoming and inclusive campus community.
