Rethinking Race: Black, White and Beyond
Friday, Jan. 31 to Friday, Feb. 14, 2014
In 1997, U.S. President William J. "Bill" Clinton chose UA as the location for his first Town Hall Meeting on Race.
Each February, The University of Akron provides a forum in which race and race-related issues can be discussed, examined, and hopefully, better understood. The series offers both the University and Northeast Ohio community the opportunity to hear and share a wide variety of viewpoints.
Through films, performances, Face-2-Face Conversations, and keynote speakers, Rethinking Race hopes to engage the public with important topics such as diversity in the workplace and awareness of issues and culture.
