Critical Race Theory: The Politics of Race and Education

Grace Holt Lectures

April 14, 2022

4:00 PM - 5:30 PM

The 2022 Annual Grace Holt Celebration serves the purpose to engage our community of faculty, staff, students, and alumni with emerging scholars and pressing issues in Black Studies as well as provide a space for reconnection and networking. We believe that training in Black Studies is critical for our students as they enter an increasingly tumultuous world and that we provide an important companion to many professions ranging from health care to business, law, and public policy. This was Grace Holt's vision and we are committed to sustaining it even in challenging times.
Each year, we honor Grace Holt's legacy and celebrate our community through the Grace Holt Luncheon where we present student awards and the Grace Holt Keynote Lecture featuring scholars in the field of Black Studies.
This year's event takes place on Thursday, April 14th at 4:00 PM CST, and will center around the discussion of critical race theory moderated by Dr. Joseph Jewell, head of the Department of Black Studies.
Panelists include:
  • Sumi Cho, Director of Strategic Initiatives with The African American Policy Forum
  • Adrienne Dixson, Professor of Education Policy at UIUC
  • Marvin Lynn, Professor at Portland State University
  • Dave Stovall, Professor of Black Studies and CLJ at UIC
