Thank you to all that were able to attend this event.
The 2021-22 UNCG Ashby Dialogue Series on Belonging at UNCG celebrated their work with a keynote address on Eradicating Barriers to Belonging: From “Fitting in” to Social Justice.
In her address, Dr. Elan Hope, a nationally recognized scholar, speaker and advocate, shed light on the need to look beyond interpersonal factors to structural and systemic realities that shape belonging. She challenged us to go beyond being well-meaning to being well-prepared, to change the environment rather than just the people, and to understand Blackness (or any marginalization) not as a concept but as a lived experience. Her candor was refreshing and her research rich with stories of young “changemakers” striving to “fill in the gaps” – both interpersonally and institutionally – regarding equity, social justice and belonging.
Please join us for a virtual event in honor of Black History Month!
