400 Years of Inequality: Changing the Narrative

Downtown Campus
Tidewater Building (1440 Canal Street, New Orleans, LA 70112)
Diboll Auditorium

A Kickoff Community Event 

This community event aims to encourage an open discussion surrounding the impact of slavery on the United States. We hope that by publicly acknowledging 400 years of inequality, we can promote understanding and awareness while joining the community in reaffirming our commitment to a future of equality. Event will feature speaker series, mass incarceration panel disscussion, local performers, art exhibit, and documentary screening.
