Last Wednesday (4/29), the Writing and Speaking Programs sponsored a “Write-in/Speak-in Reflection Space” on Lehman Lawn in response to recent events in Baltimore—and in partnership with the Collective Advocacy Project. At this event, students (hopefully including you!) had the opportunity to speak and/or write about what’s happening in Baltimore from student perspectives. Thank you to everyone who let their voices be heard.
Below are just a few of all the submissions on display on the second floor of Barnard Hall in the Writing and Speaking Center. Please stop by the Center to continue reading each others’ responses and sharing your own. The submissions box will be here until the end of the Spring semester.
We believe this Reflection Space is an opportunity to highlight the political value of student voices and the acts of writing and speaking as mediums for dialogue and political change. We hope you will contribute and be heard!
