Student-led discussion series focuses on race
Oct. 29, 2010
KALAMAZOO--Western Michigan University will launch a discussion series for students Tuesday, Nov. 2, that focuses on racial issues.
The series is one of the many activities WMU is scheduling as part of the national touring exhibit, "RACE: Why Are We So Different?," which will be at the Kalamazoo Valley Museum through Jan. 2.
Although open to the public, the RACE Discussion Series is geared specifically toward WMU students. About 40 students have been trained to help facilitate the discussions, which can be used as a way to initiate conversations in the classrooms.
