Salamishah Tillet To Deliver Keynote at Dartmouth College's Historic Student-Led “Beyond the Brochures” Conference

Last month, Dartmouth College students staged a campus-wide protest to draw attention to instances of homophobia, sexual assault, and racism that have occurred on campus.  In response, the school administrators cancelled classes for a day of discussions and debate for the first time since the 1980’s anti-apartheid protests.

This Saturday, May 11, A Long Walk Home co-founder Dr. Salamishah Tillet will join them by delivering the keynote address, “Silent Epidemic No More: Race, Rape, and The Power of Student Activism” for Dartmouth College’s historic student-led “Beyond the Brochures” Conference.  On this day, Dartmouth students and those from 11 other colleges and universities will gather for a series of conversations on how to improve openness and tolerance on their college campuses.  They will learn how to empower each other as future leaders by sharing strategies on mediating cultural conflict and understanding in a manner that will engender the eradication of cultural bias and ignorance.

The event is at 3PM and is Free and Open to the Public.
