Virtual Roundtable – 8 Minutes and 46 Seconds to Revolution

We invite you to join us this Wednesday night at 7pm for a special event.

A Virtual Roundtable featuring:

Kabria Baumgartner, English and Women’s & Gender Studies, University of New Hampshire
Shannon King, History, Fairfield University
Charles Peterson, Africana Studies, Oberlin College & Conservatory
Nicosia Shakes, Africana Studies and Women’s, Gender, & Sexuality Studies, College of Wooster

In the days since the murder of George Floyd, protesters have taken to the streets in cities across the United States and the world to protest police violence and call attention to the systemic racism that undergirds so much of our society. On Wednesday night, these four scholars of the black experience in the United States, all with longstanding and deep connections to our College of Wooster community, will help us make sense of this critical historical and cultural moment. They are here to help us understand how we got to this point and where we go from here – as individuals, as a community, as a society.

This roundtable discussion, while aimed at students and based on student questions, is open to all members of our Wooster community including staff, faculty, and alumni.

Registration required. Register in advance: After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing additional information.

This event is sponsored by the Department of History with grateful support of the Chief Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Officer and the President’s Office.
