As an institution of higher education, I believe that we are uniquely positioned to engage in thought-provoking dialogue. Universities have long been places where individuals have discussed complex issues, pushed boundaries and unearthed complexities.
That's why I hope you'll join me on Wednesday night to hear from revolutionary artist Dread Scott. Scott brings a unique perspective to the economic foundations, social relations, and governing ideas of America, and his work encourages audiences to explore important questions based upon these perspectives.
It's important for us to keep civil discourse and learning alive in our institutions and in our communities. Please join us for this conversation.
To further explore this topic, I hope you will also join me on January 27 for our next "Critical Conversation" where a panel of experts will uncover various contexts including the historic, legal, and societal impacts of race and racism in America.
I look forward to seeing you at both events,
Ben Vinson III
