About this Event
Isabel Wilkerson’s pivotal work, Caste has led to many insightful conversations around the criticality of understanding race, place and caste in global contexts. Ibram Kendi’s landmark, award winning text Stamped from the Beginning challenged all of its readers to think deeply about American constructions of race and racism as part of a human hierarchy. This dialogue on race, racism, anti-blackness, anti-semitism and other forms of oppression within these constructs between Dorothy Mosby and Kijua Sanders-McMurtry was meant to engage those who have read one or both of these texts.
Dorothy Mosby is Interim Vice President for Academic Affairs and Dean of the Faculty and the Mary Woolley Professor of Spanish. She joined the faculty in 2003.
Kijua Sanders-McMurtry is Vice President for Equity and Inclusion and Chief Diversity Officer. She joined the College as the inaugural person in her role in 2018.
The event was sponsored by the Alumnae Association, the Office of the Dean of the Faculty and the Office of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion
