The University of Nebraska-Lincoln Chancellor’s Commission on the Status of People of Color and TRIO Programs will host a public Zoom and livestream event on the Black Student Union from 6 to 8 p.m. July 15.
The event, “Black Student Union: The Next Generation of Student Activism,” will feature a panel discussion with University of Nebraska–Lincoln and University of California, Berkeley student leaders of the Black Student Union and Black Live Matters movement. To access the inter-campus event via Zoom, use meeting ID 207 696 0382, with the password, Zoom.
Leaders of the Black Student Union across the nation have worked to elevate, advocate and advance change in diversity, inclusion and justice alongside peers, friends, family and allies. The student activism, ignited by the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis, has featured rallies, protests and demonstrations around the world. The student leaders are connecting these off-campus events to their respective campuses, helping further the movement toward justice and equality.
