Black History Month Celebration Panel: Narratives on History, Belonging, & Activism," hosted by the Columbia University School of Social Work (CSSW) Office of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (ODEI). This event is to collectively celebrate and share authentic narratives of Black & African-American experiences to counter the dominant narratives that perpetuate the stigmatization and oppression of Black & African-American Folx.

This free event is hosted on Zoom. It features a panel of four (4) speakers with various backgrounds, with a commitment to seeking and supporting equity for Black Folx, as well as other historically-marginalized populations. They will share their personal stories, perspectives on the history of belonging in their respective communities, and strategies for sustaining activism & healing.

The panel will be moderated by Karma Lowe, Associate Dean for Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion & Community Engagement.
