- a guest speaker (Reymundo Quezada)

In preparation for the event, we are asking the USD community (faculty, alumni, and students) to respond to this question:
- What examples of racism/anti-Blackness have you experienced and/or witnessed @ USD?
- Conversely, what examples of anti-racism have you experienced and/or witnessed @ USD?
- Access to Anti-Racism Discussion Readings (Darder & Fletcher, 2020; Devega, 2020; Kendi, 2020).
- video of the group discussions

- chat box reflections shared by participants
We would like to thank everyone who showed up for our brave conversation!
