Carthage offers new series ‘America: A Racial History’
Over the years, students have voiced their desires for more learning opportunities outside of the classroom. Carthage is making those learning opportunities a reality! Starting Wednesday, Feb. 12, the Student Affairs Office of Equity and Inclusion is kicking off a new out-of-classroom educational series called “America: A Racial History.”
Students will learn about America’s racial history and the influential role of the ideology of white supremacy in the formation of the country. The series will address America’s political, economic, social, and legal foundations and the ideological impacts of white supremacy in the United States and its profound and continuing effects today.
Hosted by Roger Moreano, assistant dean of students and director of the Student Affairs Office of Equity and Inclusion, the series will feature a variety of presenters from Carthage’s faculty and staff.
Purpose of the program
“America: A Racial History,” is meant to fill in 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.
