On January 28th, 2016 I will be a panelist at Oakland University discussing racial profiling, social justice, and role of higher education institutions when racial injustice tragedies occur across the nation.
This event is a part of the African-American Celebration Month festivities at Oakland University which takes place from January 18 – February 18.
The month of events kicks off with The Keeper Of The Dream Awards Ceremony which honors students who exemplify Dr. King’s vision and promote interracial acceptance and understanding on the Oakland campus and beyond.
I had the honor of being a recipient of the Keeper Of The Dream Award in 2009, and this great honor continues to influence my work and life in deeply felt ways.
I will share any take-aways and reflections from my panel experience either on this site or through Notes from an Aspiring Humanitarian.
