Where is Black Studies Today? A Community Conversation

April 29 @ 1:00 pm-4:00 pm


Hear from academics, poets, activists, and musicians on the history, current theorizing, and practice of Black Studies.
This will be a community gathering centered on discussing the need and function of Black Studies both in the community and in the university. We will especially be motivated by an intention to seed conversation on cultivating a comprehensive Black Studies initiative and program centering around Metropolitan State University in the next coming years.
The intention would be to hold an in-person panel discussion accompanied by poets and artists to open up the space and set the tone for the program. Panelists will be intergenerational professors and organizers who have done work in the area of Black Studies and can provide their insights into why Black Studies is needed as a field and should be seen as a value in the university particularly as it relates to building community power and collective agency among Black communities.

This is a free all-ages event.
