About

On October 15, we will be co-sponsoring an event that will address the issues of the #BlackLivesMatter movement. This event will feature a conversation with Alicia Garza entitled, "On the 21st Century Civil Rights Movement."

A social activist committed to challenging society to recognize and celebrate the contributions of all individuals, specifically black people and queer communities, Alicia Garza is the co-creator of the viral twitter hastag and movement, #BlackLivesMatter, a national organizing project which has evolved into the banner under which this generation's civil rights movement marches.

The event is co-sponsored by The Office of Diversity and Inclusion; American Studies; U.S. Latino/a Studies; MICA; The Critical Race Initiative (Department of Sociology); College of Agriculture and Natural Resources; School of Architecture, Planning and Preservation; College of Arts and Humanities; College of Behavioral and Social Sciences; Robert H. Smith School of Business; College of Computer, Mathematical, and Natural Sciences; College of Education; A. James Clark School of Engineering; The Graduate School; Philip Merrill College of Journalism; College of Information Studies; UM School of Public Health; School of Public Policy; Undergraduate Studies; University Libraries; African American Studies; Asian American Studies; and The Department of Women's Studies.
