Description

Students who live at the intersection of Blackness, first-generation in college status, and socioeconomic disadvantage are attempting to navigate a deadly worldwide pandemic, in the medical sense, and state-sanctioned violence at the hands of police and white supremacists in the physical/mental well-being sense. While variants surge and trials forge on, these students are estranged from a physical campus they might not have felt attachment to, shouldering childcare, distance learning, work related and technological challenges on their own and sustaining continued fear, rage and sadness at the constant barrage of traumatic headlines of death and violence towards Black bodies. This workshop serves as a research-based call-to-action, a guided self-assessment of the ways campuses have, are and will support their Black, first-gen, and low-income students. The presentation will also include tangible action items and next steps.

Presentation delivered twice on Feb 2nd and 3rd. Both presentations can be found below.
