About this event:

The Office of Multicultural Affairs will be hosting a panel discussion of  "Trayvon Martin & Jordan Davis: The Dangers of Being A Black Man in America." The event is scheduled for Tuesday, March 11th at 12:30p.m. The discussion format will offer students an opportunity to ask questions about the cases and verdicts as it relates to the livelihood of black men to a panel of informed faculty & staff. Do you think the results of these cases demonstrate what our nation really think about the value of the lives of its young Black men? What message do the verdicts of these cases send to our black men as well as our black women? Where does the image of urban music & fashion come into discussion? Should black men change their culture to be secure & safe from society’s misconceptions of a black man? What steps should be taken to address recent injustices and prevent future cases?

Additionally, A candlelight vigil will be held in remembrance of Trayvon Martin & Jordan Davis at 7 p.m. in the Residential Plaza near the fountain.
