As part of an Africana Studies Special Lecture Series, Dr. Carnell Jones, URI Director of Enrollment Services, shared his insights on the culture of race and race relations endemic to the Ferguson, Mo. area. The talk, “What’s Happening in Missouri? Race, Violence, & Campus Response,” was planned in response to the increasingly volatile race relations across the country, in order to facilitate important conversations about race relations.
