Campus Dialogue on Race Oct. 31-Nov. 9

November 03, 2008 By: admin Category: Events No Comments →

This ten day series of events is held annually on the HSU Campus in early November.  The Campus Dialogue on Race is an annual event at Humboldt State University that invites students, staff, faculty, administrators and community members to present and attend programs that relate to racial justice and its intersections with other forms of oppression. Our objective is to create spaces and structures for reflection, analysis and dialogue. This year’s Dialogue will run from October 31 to November 7, 2008.  Nalo Hopkinson’s presentation is a part of this extensive effort. Please consult the Dialogue schedule of events for more information on the many interesting presentations and activities.
