Equity and Excellence Lecture Series
In January, we launched our Presidential Equity & Excellence Lecture Series. The inaugural lecture was an overwhelming success with more than 800 students, faculty, staff and community members in attendance to hear acclaimed activist, author and scholar Dr. Angela Davis’ talk on Building Community: The Case for Educational Equity.
We held our second lecture in January, featuring Dr. Barbara Ransby (pictured right), a noted historian, university professor and writer. Dr. Ransby is Distinguished Professor of African American Studies, Gender and Women’s Studies, and History at the University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC), where she directs the campus-wide Social Justice Initiative. Her lecture, Democratizing Knowledge: Teaching and Learning for Critical Citizenship, was well intended as well.
We thank everyone who joined us for these incredible lectures. For those who were nto able to attend, the lectures are available online, via the Bremerton Kitsap Access Television Vimeo Channel, here: https://vimeo.com/bkat.
