LSC-Kingwood hosts Race Summit II

LSC-Kingwood hosts Race Summit II
LSC-Kingwood invites the community to discuss race relations at its Race Summit II on Monday, Feb. 22 at 7 p.m. in the Student Conference Center.

Race, diversity and inclusion are topics that many are having around the world.

These sensitive topics will be discussed at Lone Star College-Kingwood’s Race Summit II on Monday, Feb. 22 at 7 p.m. The summit, which is part of the college’s Black History Month events, will encourage students and the community to have an open dialogue about cultural and racial equality and inclusivity as it pertains to the campus community. The event will be held in the Student Conference Center (SCC).

“I hope to come up with real and practical solutions to bring racism and discrimination to an end,” said Charles Wright, LSC-Kingwood student and president of the Student Government Association and the African American Student Association. “I look forward to hearing opposing opinions and learning to love one another despite our differences.”

The discussion on race relations will continue in order to help student and community members better understand the racial climate in society and how they can work to be a part of the solution to the issues this country is facing.

“My goal at the summit is to have a heart-changing conversation and experience with my peers of different races and ethnicities,” Wright said.

During fall 2015, LSC-Kingwood students and employees hosted the first Race Summit in which race relations were discussed with students from the University of Maryland-Baltimore County.
