8:45 Discussion on Diversity and Practical Inclusivity

Led by Dr. Dawn Bennett-Alexander, Associate Professor of Employment Law & Legal Studies

Hyphenated American is back this year with the theme: Diversity Enriches! Artists of a variety of cultures and backgrounds are coming together for a night of spoken word, new compositions, visual art and dance. Come on out for this free show and enjoy the beauty of diversity. We’ll follow the show up with a safe discussion about the importance of diversity and what inclusivity looks like in our daily lives. Be on the lookout for news about the artists involved.

Last year’s Hyphenated American project, supported by an Idea Lab Mini-Grant, was a great success featuring visual art, poetry, new music compositions, and guest lecturers who came together for a show focused on Latinos in the U.S. This April, Hyphenated American is returning with a broader focus to amplify the voices of immigrants, refugees, and hyphenated Americans of every culture.

Supported in part by the UGA Hispanic Student Association and Ideas for Creative Exploration.
