The symposium is part of the UD Antiracism Initiative, a multiyear collaborative project with a variety of faculty, departments and programs across the university working to grapple with and remedy racism at the University of Delaware and in the state of Delaware.

With guest scholars Alyssa Mount Pleasant (University at Buffalo), Hillary Green (University of Alabama), Jody Allen (a UD alumna who leads the Lemon project at the College of William and Mary) and Rhondda Thomas (Clemson University).
