History, Conflict and Promise: Civil Rights at the UW


Kane Hall (map) University District
Wed., May 3, 7:30 p.m. 2017


In 1968, the Black Student Union occupied the offices of the University of Washington's president to demand changes in admissions policies and curricula. Their action made a difference. On this night, prominent UW alumni will talk about the state of the university's "commitment to justice and equality for all." Ralina Joseph will moderate a conversation with Larry Gossett, Verlaine Keith-Miller, Sharon Maeda, Emile Pitre, and Rogelio Riojas.
