This year’s conference features a nationally known keynote speaker, Shaun King, in addition to a diverse set of workshops and panel discussions led by undergraduate and graduate students, faculty, administrators and members of the local, regional and national communities. While this conference is open to all, pre-registration, which starts December 30, 2018, is required. BIC 2019 is a joint partnership between the Black Student Union and the Office of Multicultural Affairs.
Civil Rights Today: A New Civil Rights Movement. Shaun King is a columinist for The Intercept and the Writer-In- Residence at Harvard Law School's Fair Punishment Project, which is amongst the most compelling voices. He is also a strong advocate for human dignity for African Americans. He offers an "articulate and historically grounded take on the most pressing problems of the day."
