Common Room, Lower Level, Rackham Building
The election of Donald Trump has catalyzed historic levels of activism around the country. The Women's March on the day after the inauguration in 2017 is considered to be the largest single day demonstration ever. However, students have been organizing in large numbers, notably after the killing of Trayvon Martin, which catalyzed the Black Lives Matter movement. In this workshop, educator and organizer Mariame Kaba will illuminate the long history of activism for change, especially that with youth at the center. She will draw from recent examples of students engaging and creating social change, as well as her own history of organizing, to illuminate the pitfalls and promises of this current moment.
This workshop is designed for graduate students and postdoctoral fellows. Space is limited. For faculty and staff, please contact RackhamEvents@umich.edu to see if we can accommodate your attendance.
