Tendayi Achiume:

Campus Dialogue on Racism and Intolerance

Friday, April 26  |  2:00-9:00pm  |  C-102 & Snider Hall




Tendayi Achiume
UCLA law Professor (J.D., Yale) was appointed by the Human Rights Council of the United Nations in Nov. 2017 to serve as "Special Rapporteur on Contemporary Forms of Racism, Racial Discrimination, Xenophobia and Related Intolerance." In this distinguished position, she serves as an independent human rights expert appointed to call attention to the most pressing problems of racial, ethnic and xenophobic discrimination and systemic intolerance around the world. She conducts fact-finding visits, works directly with nations to effect change, and submits periodic reports to the Human Rights Council. Her appointment also serves as a platform for interdisciplinary research and the exchange of knowledge on how to best implement global anti-racism standards.

The main component of this event will be an evening keynote talk in Snider Hall for members of the campus and local community who share an interest in social justice and human rights issues at the cutting edge of national and global conversations. The afternoon session will allow students and faculty to meet in a more intimate setting with Professor Achiume to discuss her experiences and observations while serving as special rapporteur, as well as to probe elements emphasized in her distinguished research and scholarship. Sponsored by the College of the Arts, Humanities & Social Sciences, in collaboration with Phi Kappa Phi.
