Thu, April 8, 2:00 to 3:00pm EDT (2:00 to 3:00pm EDT), Division J, Division J - Section 6 Roundtable Sessions


American college campuses have seen a rise in protests in recent years where students continue to use their “voice” to advocate for change in support of the Black Lives Matter (BLM) movement. Many people view BLM as the modern-day Civil Rights Movement as both movements demand equality for Black or African American people in the 20th Century. This study will look to understand the environment and climate of Black Lives Matter on college campus, changes that have occurred with the movement on college campuses, impact of the Black Lives Matter Movement on college campus, and the handling of racial events from administration on college campuses.
