BLACK LIVES MATTER: A Global Call for Justice and Liberation

Webinar Panel LIVE on Zoom @ 4PM

Moderated by Daisy Jenkins, Esq. with College of Humanities panelists:
Bryan Carter, Africana Studies

Obenewaa Oduro-Opuni, German Studies

Following the legacy of the Civil Rights Movement and leaders like John Lewis, Black Lives Matter has grown from an outcry against violence into an inclusive, large-scale effort for positive change. This affirmative, resilient movement seeks to “combat and counter acts of violence, create space for Black imagination and innovation, and center Black joy.” College of Humanities professors discuss the roots of Black Lives Matter, historical parallels and the future of the movement.
