After the vicious murders of Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, Sean Reed, George Floyd, Tony McDade and countless other Black Americans, cities around the country and even the world called for reform in American police operations. Many Americans protested, and continue to protest, raising their voices against the injustice that Black Americans face in their normal lives. In an effort to educate the W&M community and beyond, the Student Assembly, in conjunction with the Student Bar Association and the Office of the William & Mary Provost, offers a Speaker Series. The intent of this series is to create a safe space to educate the community on the world Black Americans face every day, how we can better that world, and how we can all maintain our health and safety in this extraordinary time of change.
