Anti-Racism Presentation and Conversation with Pulitzer Prize winner Dr. Marcia Chatelain

Participants may join together in Albertus Hall 104 or join individually via Zoom.

Recognizing the tension in current national discussions of race, and with hopes of building community and understanding, Aquinas College is pleased to present an Anti-Racism Presentation and Conversation with Dr. Marcia Chatelain, who will join virtually.

"Culture Wars, Clarity, & Common Ground: Teaching and Learning in Confusing Times"
How did the national conversation shift from the importance of anti-racism to the outlawing of critical race theory over the course of a year? Dr. Chatelain will discuss why these debates are about more than curriculum and classrooms, and how we remain committed to inclusive, values-based teaching.

In 2021, she received the Pulitzer Prize in History for her book Franchise: The Golden Arches in Black America (Liveright/Norton, 2020).
