I really enjoyed the conversation and found it to be insightful and heartfelt. I apprecated Kyle's candidness and honestly and admire his courage to do his best to address racial injustice. I appreciate WFU providing the opportunity to attend different speakers and events. My husband and son were able to attend with me.

My favorite quote of the night: "Take what you have to make what you need. You have to start somewhere." (Tarana Burke)
I am so glad that I attended this event! Tarana was a fabulous speaker - down-to-earth, yet captivating and impactful. It was awesome to see the plethora and diversity of students, staff, faculty, and community members in the audience. Tarana really illuminated the root of the 'me too' movement, where it started, and where it's going, which was so contrast to the narrative I have heard and received through popular media. She spoke about healing for survivors and changing culture as a priority, in addition to the need for and power of advocacy that comes with community organizing particularly for our youth and next generations. She called us to action by connecting it to our University's beloved motto: Pro Humanitate. This event was very organized and very intentional, which is much appreciated.
