C+V Community Talk in Partnership with Heritage Months: Continuing the Conversation - The BLM Movement and DU
Under the direction of the Black Community Initiatives (BCI) department, as well as the wider Division of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion at DU and its respective affinity groups, the University of Denver has experienced the greatest number of celebrations and events honoring its Black community in its history, thus far. Black History Month 2022 at DU is overflowing with events from the beginning to the end of February. Though the increase in programs calls for jubilation, it also calls into question DU’s past relationship to its Black community.
Following the MLK, Jr. Heritage Month C+V event, the Black History Heritage Month panel will continue the conversation of DU’s past, present and future relationship with the Black community through a lens of justice, with the intent to actionize the DEI Action Plan, Impact Area 4, Build Specific Support for our Black Community. Given their psychological, political and historical expertise, the panelists will highlight their shared experiences at DU and how they relate to the contemporary fights for justice, and the Black Lives Matter movement.
