This program is in partnership with YWCA of Greater Cincinnati and United Way of Greater Cincinnati.

From David Walker's Appeal, published in September of 1829 and arguably the most radical of all anti-slavery protest documents, to Colin Kaepernick; there’s a distinct continuum of confronting inequalities and disparities in America.  Join us for an engaging discussion about how our history is reflected in present-day.

This meaningful experience will be moderated by Greater Cincinnati Foundation’s Director of Community Strategy, Robin Martin, Ed.D.  Martin has two decades of experience leading large-scale change with a strong track record of success in conceptualizing and implementing equity and social justice initiatives. Most recently, Martin served as an assistant professor in Educational Leadership and associate provost for Diversity and Inclusion at the University of Cincinnati, serving as a senior resource and catalyst in executing innovative initiatives for the Office of the Provost and the College of Education, Criminal Justice, and Human Services.

This outstanding panel will include Sean Comer, Director of Government Relations at Xavier University; Dr. Tanya Price, an academic professional with an expertise with divergent cultural backgrounds; and Dr. Karen Cudjoe, Faculty Advisers for the University of Cincinnati’s African Student Association.
