The recent events regarding George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Tony McDade, Ahmaud Arbery, among several other realities of injustice have reminded us all that history repeats itself. Such events that have occurred to Black people in this country are not new and many members of our community have been forced to deal with the scourge of racism that has plagued America for generations.
Given the enormity of this moment and its implication on our student community and their families, the Institute of Politics is creating a space for support, reflection, connection and healing.
On Wednesday, July 8th at 7pm ET, Brittany Packnett Cunningham, IOP Director’s Leader and former Resident Fellow will join our student community to lead a conversation to discuss the current movement and ways we can each walk, act, write, or speak in the name of change. If you’d like to join the conversation, please RSVP HERE by Tuesday, July 7th at 11:59PM ET.
The event is organized by the Institute of Politics’ Politics, Race and Ethnicity Program and in collaboration with the leadership of the Harvard Black Student Association, Association for Black Harvard Women, and Harvard Black Men's Forum.
