Campus Conversation with Joan C. Browning is Oct. 21

Join Ohio University Southern for its monthly virtual series, Campus Conversations, which addresses race from different perspectives, from noon-1 p.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 21.

Hosted by the Ohio University Southern Council on Diversity and Inclusion, Campus Conversations hopes to serve as a catalyst for change by bringing people together to learn, share experiences, ask questions and inspire collective action.

October’s event is Campus Conversation: A Freedom Rider in 2020, with Joan C. Browning. Browning has dedicated her life to fighting for equality. As a Freedom Rider, Joan was an active part of the Civil Rights Movement. In the decades since, Joan has continued her activism and shared her experiences to inspire others to do the same. Joan will discuss how social activism continues to play a critical role in ensuring racial equality in our communities today.  

This event is open to Ohio University Southern students, faculty, staff, alumni and the community.
