I missed this because I somehow did not get the notification that the event had changed locations and was sitting in the posted location for too long. When I did realize it had moved it was too crowded to get into - could have used two sessions of this topic

The panelists were great. I read Barbara Smith's work in grad school in the 1980s and appreciated hearing from her. I thought Beverly Guy-Sheftall's questions helped Smith and Raquel Willis to talk at a good level that was both approachable by a large audience but also engaging.

I appreciated the multilingual opening and the mixture of poetry, art, and music to open us up to a variety to ways to think and share about DEI.

The kickoff was wonder interesting. There was seriousness, humor, songs and free pens! A good way to start the day.

The slideshow while waiting for the program to start was great - a reminder of the injustices that this type of program is trying to combat. I also thought the second musician was very engaging. The music of the first performer was good but one song would have been enough for me. That is my positive feedback. Things I think should be done better next year:
Start on time. MHC is great to provide this opportunity but please respect our time and start the program on time. Having an almost 15 minute delay looks sloppy and poorly planned. Makes one wonder if the whole day is going to be like this.
I am sure Kijua had some very interesting and important things to say but the speed at which she speaks is counter productive and I can't follow a word of it. Please slow down.
The email about lunch tickets should have gone out at least a week before - maybe with a map as to which where each food truck was going to be parked. Having food trucks on campus is such a treat but if you don't know in advance who they are and where they'll be, particularly on a cold rainy day, you can't take enjoyment in them. I had no idea until the morning of BOOM that lunch was going to be provided.

I saw Barbara Smith earlier in the day and found her to be a wonderful educator, sharing her experiences and knowledge. Bring her back!!

It was not what I was expecting and really didn't meet the Boom goals or level of event.
