Ongoing Campus Events:
Carleton College’s senior administrative leadership has mandated antiracism training for all faculty, staff, the Board of Trustees, and key alumni volunteer leaders at the advocacy of the student activist group The Ujamaa Collective. External trainers Dr. Bryana French and Dr. Stephen Brookfield, from the Minnesota-based team antiracisttraining.org, will offer a series of sessions that they have created specifically with Carleton’s objectives, as articulated in the CEDI Action Team report, in mind.
The history of anti-Black racism casts a long shadow onto the present. What role do sites of memory — museums and monuments — play in our future? Can they become tools for change as well as oppression? This series offers the Carleton community an opportunity to hear from distinguished scholars who are actively engaged in thinking about how history can help us create a better future. Students, faculty, and staff are also encouraged to join a discussion group to continue the conversation.
