Race & Reconciliation Initiative – The State of Our Union
Please join Dr. Frederick Gooding, chair of TCU’s Race & Reconciliation Initiative, and Mr. Marcellis Perkins, graduate assistant for the RRI, for a discussion about TCU’s affiliation with Universities Studying Slavery, the global consortium of universities studying their institutions’ relationship to slavery. Dr. Gooding and Mr. Perkins will provide an overview of some common trends among USS partners and then share more details about how the RRI is collaborating with and learning from the consortium. Audience members can expect to learn about more about the growing global movement, launched in 2013 by the University of Virginia, to engage in truth-telling projects addressing enslavement and racism in institutional histories.
