Open to all, this virtual conversation will be facilitated by Dr. Jaymie Orphanidys, Director, Diversity Equity Inclusion Education, in the Office of Diversity, Inclusion & Community Engagement. We will discuss topics covered in The Tradition, a Pulitzer Prize-winning collection of poems that explores racialized violence and the history of oppression in America while celebrating Black and queer experiences.

The event will be introvert-friendly, giving attendees the freedom to participate in the discussion however they wish (video on/off, speaking/using chat to comment, silently participating).
