A New Series at Carthage College • February-March 2020

This new educational, out-of-classroom series for the Carthage College community and the local public will focus on learning America’s racial history and the influential role of the ideology of white supremacy in the formation of the country. Attendees are invited to come together as we address America’s political, economic, social, and legal foundations; the ideological impacts of white supremacy in the United States; and the profound and continuing effects today.

Hosted by Roger Moreano, Assistant Dean of Students and Director of the Student Affairs Office of Equity and Inclusion, this series will feature a variety of presenters from Carthage’s faculty and staff. All presentations will be held at noon on Wednesdays in WOH’s Place in the Todd Wehr Center and are free of charge. For more information, contact Roger, rmoreano@carthage.edu

Series Goals


The purpose of this program is to fill the glaring gaps that have always existed in the telling of America’s racial history and contemporary racial issues in colleges, universities, and the K-12 school systems in America. Carthage has a responsibility to help create a more informed Carthage student body as students prepare to graduate from our institution and become active, engaged, and principled citizens in America.
