The Black College Experience: A Panel Discussion with Black Faculty and Students
October 20 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm CDT
One of the staple readings of the Moody College Honors Program has been the critically acclaimed memoir “Between the World and Me,” a powerful reflection on the legacy of white supremacy in America. To supplement our conversations in class, this panel discussion will focus on one of the themes of the book: the author’s transformative experience attending Howard University. Our faculty panelists, like Coates, have attended historically Black colleges as well as small liberal arts colleges and state schools. At UT, where our mission is to “transform lives for the benefit of society,” what is the experience like for Black students? Is it transformative in the ways that Howard was for Coates? Is it transformative in the way that it often is for other UT students? What is liberating and what is oppressive? How do students navigate white spaces on campus and classrooms? And what can all students and faculty learn from their stories? Please join us on October 20 for this moderated webinar discussion with Black faculty and students from the Moody College of Communication.
