Panel on Racial Profiling, Social Justice, And The Role of Higher Education

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.

I'm a Social Justice Educator and Aspiring Humanitarian who is interested in conflict resolution, improving intergroup relations, and building more equitable and inclusive communities. "Notes from an Aspiring Humanitarian" is my blog, where I write about issues of diversity, inclusion, equity, and social justice. By exploring social identities through written word, film & video, and other forms of media, I hope to continue to expand and enrich conversations about social issues that face our society, and to find ways to take social action while encouraging others to do so as well in their own ways.
