Issues and Underlying Issues
The idea for this club arose from Steve Piker’s “Slavery, 1619” class. This interest-driven club will meet every other week to discuss current issues as well as the background behind them. Members will decide which topics will be addressed during the next meeting, and perhaps suggest possible materials to view or read beforehand. Emphasis will be placed on issues involving stigmatization and marginalization. Call to attend a meeting and see what we are all about.
