On behalf of the Read and Reflect Committee, I am writing to ask your assistance with the campus-wide initiative planned to celebrate the 150th anniversary of the Emancipation Proclamation. In an effort to stimulate conversations about race, and in particular about racial attitudes on campus, a group comprised of faculty, staff, and students, has chosen a book entitled Why are All the Black Kids Sitting Together in the Cafeteria for small-group discussions to be held in the Hurvis Room at the Warch Campus Center from 11 am-12:30 pm on Martin Luther King Day.
Free books will be provided before break to interested faculty, staff and students who sign up online at www.lawrence.edu/dept/student_dean/volunteer. (The volunteer office will distribute them to all who request.)
An hour and a half discussion is a very small beginning, but it’s nice to have the opportunity to at least open the door for some campus conversations about race, and this anniversary obviously gives us an unusual occasion. Thank you.
