Black Alliance Plans Diversity Panel for Black History Month

Bethany’s Black Alliance will host a Diversity Panel on campus as part of Black History Month. The event is scheduled for February 16 in Weimer Lecture Hall from 4-5 p.m. The panel will consist of students who have volunteered to answer questions posed by the audience. Questions should pertain to the experiences students have had as members of a particular “group” (based on ethnicity, race, sexual orientation, ability, etc.) in society and on campus. Rev. Scott Thayer will serve as moderator. The event was initiated to educate and introduce alternative perspectives in order to debunk stereotypes and foster tolerance and empathy for diversity on the Bethany campus.
