CC has held six events in a series called “CC Conversations,” an in-depth, online forum which seeks to engage participants on the issues, events, and moments of our time. So far, the series has had more than 19,000 viewers, either through Zoom or joining via CC’s Facebook page for a livestream. The series centers on the scholarship and expertise of Colorado College faculty, staff, students, and alumni and furthers the college’s educational mission. Anyone, regardless of whether they are affiliated with CC, can tune in.

The first forum, “CC Conversation on Racism, Policing, & Protest” was held on June 18, and was moderated by Manya Whitaker, associate professor and chair of the Education Department. A CC Conversation has been held every month since, and include: “Facing the Pandemic,” in July (with three alumni panelists: Margaret Liu ’77, Sonlatsa Jim-Martin ’94, and Tia Tummino ’11); “Rising Indigenous Liberation,” in August; “Antiracism,” in September; and “Election 2020: What’s at Stake?” in October.

A sixth CC Conversation on climate change, moderated by Corina McKendry, associate professor of political science and director of the State of the Rockies Project, is scheduled for Block 5.
