Honoring Dr. Manuel Pierson

Last year around this time I wrote about how important it is to honor the bridge builders in our lives, and to be bridge builders for others after attending the Black Alumni Association‘s homecoming events at Oakland University.

I was reminded of the significance of that message again after attending homecoming this year. Dr. Manuel Pierson was such a bridge builder for students of color on OU’s campus.

I'm a Social Justice Educator and Aspiring Humanitarian who is interested in conflict resolution, improving intergroup relations, and building more equitable and inclusive communities. "Notes from an Aspiring Humanitarian" is my blog, where I write about issues of diversity, inclusion, equity, and social justice. By exploring social identities through written word, film & video, and other forms of media, I hope to continue to expand and enrich conversations about social issues that face our society, and to find ways to take social action while encouraging others to do so as well in their own ways.
