I really enjoyed the panel for their understanding of the history and emotional component of racial inequality and white supremacy in America. However, I felt that as a graduate student, many undergrads in attendance seemed to be there to fill a requirement. I think that undercuts the importance of this event.

I'm on the faculty. It was eye-opening. I knew there was a problem, I just didn't know how big a problem there is. To me this trumps all other problems on campus.

The time given to the panel was to long which took away a great deal of the time from the students who are the primary reason for the Town Hall Meeting. I would also like to see the ground rules set before we start the meeting not as we go. thank you.

Michelle Alexander is a tremendous scholar and an important voice with a powerful, timely message. I am gratified the university brought her to speak.

Fantastic! They played a variety of music and wonderful songs. I wanted to buy a CD but could not get near the table. Judging from the audience, everyone enjoyed it, I know my husband and I surely did.
