A Conversation About Race and Higher Education
In January, Debra Freberg and Michelle Loyd-Paige directed the campus play Spinning Into Butter. The play was performed by the Calvin Theater Company in February 2019. The play explored the difficulties in talking about race and the need for courageous spaces to talk about race and racism in higher education. Michelle and Debra are facilitating a conversation on April 25. Where they will talk about how their own identities and experiences shape both their experiences with race and their conversations about race in the classroom. Like the play, Debra and Michelle will base their presentation in higher education, but the observations they share are applicable beyond the classroom. All are welcome. You need not have seen the play to participate in this session.
The session is part of Calvin's Stand Against Racism observance and is supported in part by the Michigan Council for Arts and Cultural Affairs (MCACA) and is part of the 2018-2019 Create.Unite.Renew arts theme.
