Race & Sexuality Topic of Monday Lecture
October 21, 2016
An internationally recognized speaker on race and sexuality will present an interactive lecture at Emporia State University on Monday night.
Dr. Jamie Washington, president and founder of the Washington Consulting Group, will lead “Navigating Race and Sexualities: Exploring Identity and Intersectionality” from 7 to 9:30 p.m. on Monday, Oct. 24, in the ESU Memorial Union’s Preston Family Room. The free event is open to the campus and community.
“The conversation of race and sexualities is in the front of many of our minds today. No longer are we addressing these identity issues in silos. We live as fully integrated people. There are challenges and opportunities in which we must engage, however, to be our authentic selves,” said Deanna Williams, director of diversity student programs at Emporia State. “Dr. Washington’s talk will help us navigate this important and timely topic.”
