WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 26 | 3:00 - 4:15 p.m.
Hale Hall | MLK Auditorium

While our commonalities unite us, our differences make us unique and special. Our origin stories depict who we are, how we have arrived here, and where we are headed. The origin stories of marginalized peoples, however, are often laced with the “-isms” (i.e. racism, sexism, ageism, classism, homophobia, xenophobia, religious intolerance, etc.). This session will explore how the “-isms” have impacted and shaped our personal stories, and how we can forge stronger community bonds in an effort to eradicate these “-isms” in practical ways.

PRESENTER: Dr. Linda James Myers
Professor, African American & African Studies
Director, AAAS Community Extension Center
The Ohio State University
