Center for the Study of Rhetoric in Society :
On Monday, April 24, 2006, the Center for the Study of Rhetoric in Society is sponsoring “Representations of Race and the African American Community.” This interactive event is designed to connect members of the Virginia Tech campus and surrounding communities through a day-long series of conversations including a lunchtime poster session and opportunities for small group dialogue.
The initial goal is to examine the way that race is represented in our personal, academic, and civic lives. By the end of the day, participants will be invited to explore possibilities for campus-community projects and partnerships aimed at improving the climate for racial relations and understanding.
this should be a very interesting event, but they are limiting it to on campus.
