Facing Racism Dialogues Return for Second Year


Launched last year in the wake of the events in Charlottesville, Adelphi’s series of discussions about racism will return to campus this fall.

Created and led by Perry Greene, Ph.D., Adelphi’s vice president for diversity and inclusion, Facing Racism aims to promote productive, respectful conversations that address bigotry and contribute to understanding.

Dialogues will be held every Friday in September, from 12:00 noon to 1:00 p.m., in Levermore Hall. All are welcome.
