Chestertown, MD, October 28, 2005 — Washington College's Center For The Study of Black Culture is sponsoring a discussion series titled, "A Color-Blind Society: Myth or Reality?" The first forum will take place on Thursday, November 3, at 7:00 p.m. in the Hynson Study Lounge. The entire campus is invited to participate.
The purpose of the discussion series is to heighten community awareness of contemporary racial identity issues, provide a safe place for students to openly reflect and honestly discuss these issues, and initiate a dialogue that will lead to a more unified and trusting campus community.
Two forums—one for fall, one for spring-have been designed specifically to engage Washington College students. This Thursday, representatives of student organizations will to come together and share their experiences dealing with (or not having to deal with) racial and ethnic identities in their clubs, sororities, fraternities, and athletic teams.
