Shelby Driskill and Dr. Lauranett Lee

Location: Zoom

The Bonner Center for Civic Engagement (CCE) hosts weekly Brown Bag discussions, open to members of the campus and the community, from 12:30–1:25p.m. on most Fridays during the academic year. Each week, a speaker or small panel leads a presentation on a provocative social issue, then opens up the floor for discussion. Free pizza will be provided.

As part of the University's programs held in observance of MLK Day, faculty, staff, and students are invited to hear about and discuss the continued research by Shelby Driskill and Dr. Lauranett Lee into the history of the enslaved burial ground located on what is now our campus. The conversation will give the campus community an opportunity to ask questions about the deepened research and learn more about actions taken for memorialization within the last year.

The Brown Bag Discussion series supports campus and community in collaborative study, reflection, and action to address contemporary social issues. The Center for Civic Engagement is continuing to host Brown Bags virtually on Fridays, from 1pm – 1:45pm. While there won’t be Christian’s, there will be plenty of food for thought. We invite you to BYOPizza, and hope to see you online this Friday at 1pm!
