            Student Union 307
            Admission free
            Hair is one of the first dilemmas that black people face. Do I let people touch my hair and under what circumstances? The question, “Can I touch it?” becomes one of the most awkward social moments and can break relationships before they even start. Over the years, African American hair has been associated with the ideology of white visual conception. Some people say that blacks have embraced hairstyles and beauty methods that reflect popular European standards of beauty. Blacks have also used their West African roots and their own artistry to create styles and standards that reflect a unique black culture. This discussion includes hair care information, the history behind cultural/popular hairstyles and practices, and black-owned hair-care businesses.

            Admission free
            Based on an episode from the well-known NPR podcast “Code Switch,” the Unity Center brings together a panel of scholars who discuss what it means to live at the intersection of different identities and cultures. What makes us feel like imposters in our own skin is not always straightforward, but when it comes to race and ethnicity, this feeling can be powerful and defining. Examples include using broken, but strangely colloquial, Arabic in front of other Middle Easterners or a white-passing Native American woman being treated like just another tourist when she attends powwows.

            Monday, Feb. 10

            Admission free
            What holds us back from being who we are? What sets us back from living the life we want to live? We grow up in a world that tears us down and makes us feel less than who we are. The world can make us believe that we aren’t true kings and queens. This discussion focuses on how we can dig deep within and feel safe and find brotherhood/sisterhood.

            Gaige Hall 200
            Admission free
            The island of Hispaniola (or Santo Domingo), which Dominicans share with Haitians, served as a port of entry for the first African slaves who set foot on Spain’s newly conquered territories following Christopher Columbus’ eventful transatlantic voyage in 1492. A large part of the problem of racial identity among Dominicans stems from the fact that, from its inception, their country盛世彩票ss555 hashad to negotiate the racial paradigms of its North American and European overseers. Today, 90 percent of the Dominican population has black ancestry. This is a country盛世彩票ss555 of complex racial dynamics, “where straightened hair is a social currency and natural or curly hair is referred to as pelo malo.” A panel of students discuss Dominican blackness and the development of racial identity development.

            On April 19, 1989, a young woman in the prime of her life was brutally raped and left for dead in one of New York City’s most iconic spaces, Central Park. Five teens from Harlem – four black and one Latino – were tried and wrongfully convicted of the crime in one of the most frenzied cases in the city’s history. The woman was dubbed the “Central Park jogger,” and the accused teens became known collectively as the “Central Park Five.” One of the youth, Yusef Salaam, was just 15 years old when his life was upended and changed forever.
