It’s officially the second month of 2022 and as Lobos continue in the new year, there are continual opportunities to reflect on the past and improve from it. February is Black History Month and, as such, serves as a time to think back on the history of our nation and its relationship with the Black community. 

In celebration of Black History Month, the UNM Division for Equity and Inclusion (DEI) invites Lobos to join the Diversity Dialogues, featuring the work Dismantling Constructs of Whiteness in Higher Education: Narratives of Resistance from the Academy, edited by Dr. Teresa Y. Neely and Margie Monta (Routledge, expected 2022).

UNM Vice President for Equity and Inclusion, Dr. Assata Zerai, will moderate a panel featuring editors, Dr. Margie Montañez and Dr. Teresa Y. Neely, and contributors, Dr. Eric Castillo, Nikhat Ghouse, and Brandi Wells-Stone.

This Diversity Dialogue will be held virtually on Wednesday, Feb. 9, 2022, from 12 p.m. to 1:30 p.m.
