Join the MCNY Library in our celebration of African American History Month:
Race, Racism, and Education: A panel discussion Dr. Charles Gray, Rae Mack, Mutiya Vision and Arsenio Heslop
Join us for a discussion focused on the intersection of education, ethnicity, and racism in America. This discussion will address what role education should play in mitigating racism for people of color. What role MCNY can play in this endeavor? As an institution serving primarily students of color, it is expected that this discussion will identify concrete and specific strategies for MCNY to adopt which will enable students of color to obtain additional tools to navigate a challenging environment.
