Bowling Green State University's Division of Diversity and Belonging will host a virtual panel discussion on the history of Black people’s fight for justice on Sept. 16.

With the recent deaths of Atatiana Jefferson, Breonna Taylor, George Floyd, Rayshard Brooks in addition to the many other tragic losses, hashtags such as #RIP,#SayHerName, and #BlackLivesMatter are commonplace in social media and news accounts. Yet, these hashtags are generally associated with death. This WebEx Events program, which begins at 11 a.m. on Sept. 16, will explore what justice looks like instead of the reactions to injustices that have plagued us for centuries. 

Panelists include Dr. Tom Edge, associate teaching professor and director of undergraduate programs in the BGSU School of Cultural and Critical Studies; Denaja Haygood, a BGSU undergraduate student; BGSU alumna Tiffany Henderson, J.D., and Dr. Nicole Jackson, associate professor of history. Ana Brown, director of the Office of Multicultural Affairs will be the panel moderator.

I appreciated the honesty of the panelists. There is a lot more to be said with topics of systemic racism and I hope to see more events that create space for dialogue and action.

A few technical issues but the content was great. Wish more had seen it. Should be shared widely.
