Community Panel Discussion on Race, Ethnicity and Cultural Identity


Talk with Me, Not About Me Community Panel Discussion on Race, Ethnicity and Cultural Identity

Talk with Me, Not About Me Community Panel Discussion on Race, Ethnicity and Cultural Identity  March 25, 2014  6 p.m. South City Campus, Multipurpose Room 1575 S. State Street, Salt Lake City  Moderator: John McCormick: Dean of the School of Humanities and Social Sciences at Salt Lake Community College.  Panelists:  Ahmad Afzali: Citizenship Coordinator for the English Skills Learning Center.  Samantha Eldridge: Special Projects Coordinator for the Utah Office of Multicultural Affairs.  Keith McDonald: University of Utah student and activist working on behalf of inner city youth.  Angela Romero: Utah State Legislator, Program Manager for the Sorenson Unity Center and Hispanic Rights activist.  Mike Wilson: University of Utah doctoral candidate in Philosophy of Science, specializing in Philosophy of Race.  Conversations—honest conversations—about race, ethnicity, and cultural identity can be difficult to have; yet, individual and cultural conceptions of race impact every aspect of our daily lives. Words can have an impact, but so can silence.  The SLCC Community Writing Center, in partnership with the SLCC Arts & Cultural Events, Utah Humanities Council, The Race Card Project and other groups, invites you to participate in a community discussion on race. The panel discussion includes community members and scholars whose diverse backgrounds have influenced their personal, educational and professional endeavors.
