flyer for CDOR speaker  Cornelius MinorCal Poly Humboldt’s 24th annual Campus & Community Dialogue on Race (CDOR) will take place Monday, Oct. 24 through Friday, Oct. 28. This year’s theme is Truth Telling for Liberation.
CDOR was established in 1998 when former President Bill Clinton challenged universities and communities across America to hold critical forums on race. Cal Poly Humboldt responded to the call and held its first dialogue on race on the first floor of The J, with approximately 80 people in attendance. Ever since, CDOR has been committed to creating safe spaces for this important annual dialogue to continue and to evolve.
This year, CDOR will present keynote speaker Dr. Cornelius Minor whose latest book, We Got This, explores ways to create more equitable school spaces, will present Teaching in the Age of Impossible via zoom, along with featured speaker Udodiri Okwandu, a doctoral candidate and a Presidential Scholar at Harvard University who will present Moving from Racism and Medicine: Reconciling the Past and Present via zoom.

They will appear in person on CR campus and via zoom.
Additionally, students, staff, faculty, and community members will present various workshops during the week, including a staged reading of Twilight: Los ANgeles, 1992 which is part of Rooted & Rising Staged Reading Series, collaboration between the Umoja Center and CPH Theatre Arts Program that spotlights Black playwrights and Black stories.
