The University of Toledo is continuing its Dialogues on Diversity series with a conversation organized and hosted by students.
The next virtual town hall in the series titled “Black Students Matter: Finding Our Way in the Revolution” will take place 5:30 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 3 and can be accessed on Webex using the access code 172 033 9974. The meeting password is DoD7. Join by phone at 415.655.0002.
The discussion will be moderated by Emir Moore, UToledo graduate student in the Master of Business Administration program and graduate assistant for the Office of Diversity and Inclusion, with participants including:
• Tulani Black, president of the Association for the Advancement of African American Women;
• Anthony Gennings, student trustee on the UToledo Board of Trustees;
• Dominga Grace, organizer of Toledo Together; and
• Nadia Shelton, president of the National Panhellenic Council.
“Since students are back on campus and settled into the fall semester, we thought that it was important to provide a platform for students’ voices to be heard,” Moore said. “This conversation will provide student leaders an opportunity to share their thoughts on the Black Lives Matter movement and racial equity in our society and on our campus.”
This is the seventh in a series of recent virtual Dialogues on Diversity since George Floyd was killed in Minneapolis by a police officer, sparking protests against systemic racism across the country.
