We Need To Talk About Critical Race Theory


Sep. 20, 2022, 2:30pm to 4pm

Campus Location

Office/Remote Location



Critical race theory is a topic we’ve heard about in the media and in political campaigns. What actually is critical race theory? It seemingly appeared out of nowhere and took over the airwaves, but where did it come from? Is it really a concept being ingrained into our school systems, or have politicization and controversy skewed its original meaning? Our panelists will help us understand why critical race theory became a hot button issue, what critical race theory can teach us, and help us define what critical race theory is and isn’t.
