As Winter Quarter begins, the Library will continue offering many of the services provided in Autumn Quarter in ways that incorporate University practices that protect the health and well-being of both patrons and Library staff.

11/25/2020

On December 3rd from 6-7:30pm, the University of Chicago Race and Pedagogy Working Group will host a virtual Town Hall on Race at the University of Chicago. This event is focused on student learning experiences specifically; we aim to provide a space to check-in with our student community where they can share their experiences with the content of coursework, the climate of the university community, and the composition of our community as it relates to race. Advocates for diversity, equity, and inclusion at the university are welcome, and encouraged, to attend, but we ask that faculty, staff, and administrators refrain from offering commentary and instead take this opportunity to listen to what students have to say.We expect to discuss the following broad topics:
• How race is or isn't taught in core Uchicago classes.
• The experiences of racialized people in Uchicago classrooms and what has changed with the onset of virtual learning.
• Specific concerns students have around how issues of race are dealt with at the university.
• Hopes that students have for how the university will engage with topics/issues of race in the future?

This event is a starting point to a deeper investigation by the Race and Pedagogy Working group into how Uchicago does and does not meet the learning needs of its community and in what specific ways the university can improve. Please fill out the form below to register for the town hall: https://forms.gle/BzkmJ1utvubhF9Ke6

*N.B.: A critique of UCLA Con Law Prof. Adam Winkler's Anti-2nd Amendment/Anti-Corporate Personhood Philosophy - Socratic Dialectical Inquiries – #1) Do Corporations & Blacks Have Personhood? #2) If Black People were granted Due Process under law, Citizenship, Equality which is "Personhood" under the 14th Amendment (on 9 July 1868) even though God granted U.S. "Personhood" at BIRTH!), then why is the Democrat Party, the Marxist-Darwinist-Eugenicist Academy and the Political Left so ANGRY that Personhood was granted to Corporations (Santa Clara County v. Southern Pacific Railroad Company, 118 U.S. 394 (1886) which are created by and composed of... (wait for it....) P-E-O-P-L-E!?? - Including Black People who create Businesses and Corporations all the time. ANSWER? Because to the Democrat Socialist Party and the Left the STATE is god and the omnipotent Leviathan State can countenance no competition, no departure from Consensus Groupthink... especially from Woke Black People (like me and you who are my Facebook Friends) nor from Businesses and Corporations Unleashed, Unshackled from Liberal Fascism. Natural Law seeks to FREE U.S. from Taxation without Representation, Crony Capitalism & Socialism SLAVERY. Natural Law seeks to FREE U.S. to use our God-given Talent to create an Economy based on Dynamism, Creativity and Laissez Faire (Free Market) C-A-P-I-T-A-L-I-S-M!
