School Segregation in the American North

March 18 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm
Park Alumni Center, 2450 Alumni Drive
Raleigh, NC

Join us for the 3rd annual Don C. Locke Multicultural and Social Justice Symposium, where Gloria Ladson-Billings, president of the National Academy of Education, will deliver a keynote address titled “It’s ALL de jure: Turning a Critical Eye on the Northern Strategy.” The standard narrative about school segregation draws a dividing line between the North and South and claims that the South engaged in a deliberate strategy of legal apartheid by establishing separate and unequal schools. On the other hand, the North was said to be a part of a de facto school segregation project that “just happened” to be segregated because of neighborhood segregation. This talk argues Northern complicity in ensuring that Black students would not be able to access quality education.

How To Stay Involved in Politics

March 23 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm
Talley Student Union, Room 4280, United States

The world of politics is complex, difficult, elaborate and frankly, tiring. However, being civically engaged is one of the greatest privileges we have as members of a democracy. Participants of this workshop will walk away feeling rejuvenated and inspired to be involved in politics in anyway they see fit — whether that be walking in a protest, volunteering for a candidate’s campaign or running for a political office. We will have guest speakers, including NC State alumna Jenna Wadsworth (Political Science/Women's and Gender Studies '11) , who is the youngest woman to ever be elected to public office in North Carolina, and Erica Porter, who is a member of the Wake County Board of Elections.
