I, Too, Am UW-Madison

The Black Bruins

Being Black at The University of Michigan

I, Too, Am Harvard

I, Too, Am Oxford.

The message continues with I, Too, Am UW-Madison.

From the website: 

“I, too, am UW-Madison” is a response to the “I, too, am Harvard” photo campaign. As the Harvard project spread through the multicultural student body at UW-Madison, many of us felt as though we were facing the same struggles and experiences. We want to call attention to the assumptions and questions we have received and observed from interactions with our peers and colleagues. We hope this will serve as a demonstration that the experiences of students of color at Harvard and Oxford resonate across campuses in the Midwest, like at Iowa State, and most likely can be echoed throughout the nation. We hope this campaign will lead to serious discussions about race on our campus, and on campuses nationwide.”

Ubuntu,

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.
