Faculty and students present an afternoon of lectures, workshops and discussions about the history of activism at Princeton

Come out on December 12, 2015 from 11:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. to learn about (and of course, discuss) Black activism on campus throughout the past and into the present. Supportive of the campus movement over the past year but want to learn more? Aren’t supportive because you don’t know how to be? This event will be a lineup of a public colloquium, lectures by professors such as Ruha Benjamin and Tera Hunter, and open discussions led by graduate students. The goal of the teach in is to explore ways the Black Princeton community (and interested non-Black students) can organize through this moment together, find strength in differences, and seek information and enlightenment on the history of Black student activism at Princeton.

Edited versions of the video will be posted in our archive in the coming weeks. In the meantime, please review unedited video on our Livestream channel.
