Blackboard Jungle 13 Symposium: Reimagining an Inclusive Community
The Blackboard Jungle Symposium (BBJ) is one of the University's signature events offering UVM faculty, staff, and all others a forum to participate in critical conversations, construct new and promising inclusive practices, and foster conversational spaces where diversity, equity, and the free exchange of ideas are welcomed, appreciated, and valued.
The symposium will feature Dr. Eddie Glaude, Jr. , award-winning author of In a Shade of Blue: Pragmatism and the Politics of Black America, and Democracy in Black: How Race Still Enslaves the American Soul; Judy Shepard, founder of the Matthew Shepard Foundation named for her son who was the victim of murder motivated by anti-gay hate; and Luis Versalles, Director of Pre K-12 District Partnerships with Pacific Educational Group.
