SP2 Speaker Series Part V: “Evolving Equity and Education”
- This event has passed.
This event welcomes longtime activists and organizers Ben Jealous and SP2 lecturer Walter Palmer, JD to discuss the past and future of racial equity and education at Penn and around West Philadelphia, as well as opportunities for progress. They’ll also discuss Professor Palmer’s role in advancing anti-racist curricula and his time teaching in our SP2 Racism Sequence.
We’re pleased to be able to offer and open this important dialogue up to our faculty, staff, and students and to hear more from Walter Palmer, especially given a recent, powerful talk he hosted for our SP2 community with Philadelphia activist and writer, Mike Africa, Jr.
The virtual event is being hosted in conjunction with the Office of Social Equity and Community at the University of Pennsylvania.
