Immigrant Voices Make Democracy Stronger - Video Discussion
Zoom link in the description

3:30 - 4:30 PM

In politics, representation matters — and that's why we should elect leaders who reflect their country's diversity and embrace its multicultural tapestry, says Sayu Bhojwani. Through her own story of becoming an American citizen, the immigration scholar reveals how her love and dedication to her country turned into a driving force for political change. "We have fought to be here," she says, calling immigrant voices to action. "It's our country, too." TEDTalks is a daily video podcast of the best talks and performances from the TED Conference, where the world's leading thinkers and doers give the talk of their lives in 18 minutes (or less). Look for talks on Technology, Entertainment and Design -- plus science, business, global issues, the arts and much more.

S17A - The False Promise of Anti-Racism Books
Zoom link in the description

10:00 - 11:00 AM

PRE-REQUISITES:   Please read the The Atlantic article: https://sinclair.edu/www/assets/File/Hom-StuLif-DivCam/The%20False%20Promise%20of%20Anti-Racism%20Books.pdf

Texts that seek to raise the collective American consciousness are rendered futile without concrete systemic changes. In today’s cultural moment—during which hundreds of mainstream institutions in the U.S. are acknowledging systemic racism—books and other content about race and discrimination have surged in popularity.
