WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) – A group of panelists took a holistic approach while talking about the Black Lives Matter movement Tuesday evening on Purdue University’s campus.
The panel was part of a lecture series hosted by the African American Studies and Research Center. The series focuses on class, race and gender inequality.
The panelists, all from different backgrounds, discussed their thoughts on the movement.
Associate professor Nadia Brown moderated the event. She said it’s important for students to have discussions about diversity and inclusion.
“Some of them might come with preconceived notions, but they aren’t set in stone. So having this panel here is really able to, hopefully able to, explain some things they’ve seen on television or social media, but in a really in-depth way by experts,” said Brown.
She hopes the event motivates students to continue the discussion.
