The #blacklivesmatterbeloit series was initiated by Cecil Youngblood, Bill Conover, Ron Nikora, and Nicole Truesdell at Beloit College in the aftermath of recent highly publicized police killings of unarmed black men, Eric Garner and Michael Brown. These events, along with the subsequent non-indictments of police officers involved and the activism and protests that have taken place across the country, have deeply impacted Beloit College students, faculty, staff and the larger community.
#blacklivesmatterbeloit kicks off the 2015-16 school year on September 2 at 12:30pm in Moore Lounge. This year the focus is on whiteness and challenging people to take responsibility for and interrogate how white identity impacts all of us.
