Save the Date: Block 5 1M

Mark your calendar for the first First Mondays event of the Spring Semester. Start Block 5 together virtually on Monday, Jan. 24 at 11:15 a.m. with our 1M speaker.

Austin Channing Brown, media producer and author, revels in storytelling, justice, and the celebration of black womanhood. Join Brown and Dr. Manya Whitaker, associate professor and chair of education and director of the Crown Faculty Center, as they discuss strategies for embracing, cultivating, and amplifying joy, while simultaneously acknowledging the work that needs to be done.
Brown is a speaker, writer, and media producer providing inspired leadership on racial justice in America. She uses an intentional mix of humor, pop culture, storytelling, and audience engagement to awaken people to the current realities of systemic racism and the everyday actions that allow racism to thrive. She is the author of New York Times‘ bestselling “I’m Still Here: Black Dignity in a World Made for Whiteness” and the executive producer of web series “The Next Question.”
This virtual First Mondays event will take place via Zoom. Please register in advance. After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the webinar.

The First Mondays Event Series is a campus-wide forum that aims to engage all members of the CC community, including students, staff, administrators, and faculty. The series creates opportunities for the whole community to gather, encouraging everyone to be part of the intellectual life of the college, and facilitating discourse among students, faculty, and staff, across courses, disciplines, and divisions. Classes are dismissed early on the first Monday of each block so that all may attend the First Mondays event.
