Rises in both racial tensions and racist incidents on campuses have heightened the need for college leaders to hold candid conversations about race and racism, which remain largely taboo topics.
These days, many are met with resistance, anger, or disengagement when attempting to discuss race and racism.

Panelists include Dr. Monica Frazier, Interim Chair and Professor of Cancer Biology, Columbus State University; Dr. Floyd Jackson, Chair and Professor of Chemistry, Columbus State University;
Naoko Little-Jackson, Graduate Student, Howard University (WBHR BD); Ms. Cheyanne Koran, Undergraduate, University of Wisconsin Madison (Wisc-AMP scholar); Mr. Jay Pitts, Graduate Student, Columbus State University.
