How And Why Black Lives Matter At Texas A&M
The theme of Black History Month this year – “The Black Family” – will be juxtaposed with what it means to be a part of the Aggie Family during an upcoming lecture sponsored by Texas A&M University Libraries.
In “It’s a Family Affair? How and Why Black Lives Matter at Texas A&M University,” Gwendolyn Carol Webb, a professor in the Texas A&M College of Education and Human Development, will explore this theme in a virtual event on March 29, 1-2 p.m.
Organizers said the event is part of a series of lectures designed to examine the long-term impacts of institutional racism in areas such as housing, education, the environment and biased algorithms. The purpose of the lectures is to understand how discriminatory policies and practices in these areas perpetuate inequities in BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, and People of Color) communities.
The event was originally scheduled for Feb. 15. Organizers ask those who registered for the original date but cannot attend the rescheduled event to cancel their registration so others may attend.
