When Race Isn't About Racism - But Still Dangerous

Issac Bailey, Columnist, The Sun News

Johnson Auditorium, Wall Building, Room 116 

5:00 p.m.

Isaac Bailey, columnist for The Sun News, discusses a growing body of neurological research that explains how our brains are shaped by

our environment. Bailey will introduce the concept of “toxic stress” and how it literally reshapes the brains of vulnerable youngsters, and

the implicating results. He will try to show that what is often termed racial bias in disparate treatment of black youth by police and

teachers often results from an undetected depression.

The Legacy of Malcolm X

Jeffry Halverson, Assistant Professor, Department of Philosophy and Religious Studies 

Johnson Auditorium, Wall Building, Room 116

5:00 p.m.

The man we know as Malcolm X was constantly reinventing himself. During the last year of his life (1964-1965), he entered into Sunni

Islam, traveled the Middle East and Africa, debated at Oxford University, and shifted his view of the civil rights struggle in America to an

international struggle for human rights. From his famous pilgrimage (Hajj) to the holy city of Mecca, the little known last year of Malcolm

X's life was perhaps the most transformative of all.
