Race relations have dominated the news in the past year, becoming a major national discourse. Last fall, Alpha Chi’s executive director began planning for a new series of free webinars to provide chapter advisors and members access to several opportunities to listen and learn from a variety of voices. On November 12, 2020, we held a free anti-racism workshop that provided a great online discussion led by Jenn Spellaza of Lindenwood University. Our next two events in the series will be held in February. While there is no cost to attend these events, registration is required. We hope you will join us!
Feb. 6: Personal Perspectives on Race, Privilege, and Responsibility
2:00 to 3:15 p.m. EST
How do we as individuals deal with these often overwhelming, in-your-face events that make us feel unable to make a difference? Part of the answer may lie in helping individuals gain insights from first-hand experiences. This webinar will bring together three presenters sharing their own personal experiences and perspectives. Alpha Chi encourages you to attend and ask your questions. The webinar attendance will be anonymous, and the presentation will not be recorded.

Feb. 20: Race and Memory in the South
Noon to 1:30 p.m. EST
Join us for a conversation about the relationship between human history and the memories we choose to enshrine, invent, or bury. We’ll discuss how race and public memory are inextricably entwined in American culture, from Confederate monuments and American cemeteries to literature and sports. Our goal is a discussion that will further equip us as we “make scholarship effective for good.” This panel brings together four presenters who will share their own personal experiences and historical perspectives. Alpha Chi encourages you to attend and ask your questions. Learn about the panelists for Race and Memory in the South and register for this free event.
