Race, Racism, and Racial Equity Symposium Series Kickoff — The Historical Exploitation of Black and Brown Bodies at UNC: Learning from the Past to Change the Present

September 10 @ 1:30 pm - 3:00 pm

The inaugural Race, Racism, and Racial Equity (R3) Symposium, hosted by the University Office for Diversity and Inclusion, is a series of virtual events that will bring together scholars and researchers from across campus to share their work with Carolina and the broader community. We will provide context on the state of race at UNC and in the United States, advancing the work of the Chancellor’s Commission on History, Race and a Way Forward. R3 will also highlight the stellar and innovative work of our graduate researchers through virtual “lightning” sessions and poster presentations.

The first of the R3 series, “The Historical Exploitation of Black and Brown Bodies at UNC: Learning from the Past to Change the Present, will be held on Thursday, Sept. 10, 1:30–3 p.m.

Registration required.
