Past Event: A Racial Equity Reckoning:

Black History Month Keynote Address by Dr. Benjamin Danielson

Presented on Feb. 18, 2021 by Seattle University Master of Social Work and Seattle University Nonprofit Leadership, Dr. Danielson hoped to sustain people’s commitment to racial equity during these exhausting days and to go deeper into the nature of systemic racism and strategies to help address the difficult work of promoting equity. We are currently working on developing descriptions for the artworks presented by Dr. Danielson and will add them here once we have them completed.
