"Why all the fuss about Ferguson?"
The Multicultural Advisory Board and the Center for Ethics invites you to an interactive discussion led by Professors Mark Wolfmeyer (Education) and Connie Wolfe (Psychology) about the recent protests and police violence in Ferguson, Missouri. This discussion will center around questions of white privilege that have been raised in the aftermath of the killing of Michael Brown.
Participants are invited to read Andrew O'Herir's essay, "White Privilege: An Insidious Virus that's Eating America from Within" in advance of the discussion.
This event is open to the Muhlenberg campus community.
