Yesterday, more than 70 students, faculty and community members gathered on Zoom for the African American department’s colloquium series.
Every year, Yale’s AFAM department hosts a speaker series known as the Endeavors Colloquium. This year’s theme is “Black Now: Conversations for the Revolution” and is co-sponsored by the Yale Center for the Study of Race, Indigeneity and Transnational Migration. The series kicked off Thursday around noon with LaTosha Brown, a grassroots organizer and Harvard Institute of Politics fellow. Her nonprofit organization, Black Voters Matter, focuses on increasing voter registration and advocating for voters rights in Black communities across the country.
