Mercerians Speak on Race

Mercerians Speak on Race (Macon)

February 17th is World Anthropology Day, which always occurs during Black History Month. This year, the Mercer Anthropology program presents an exhibit, “Mercerians Speak About Race”, displayed on the ground floor of Tarver Library from February 17th until March 14.

The exhibit, curated by Dr. Bourdon’s Cultural Anthropology course, collects and shares narratives from students in Dr. Bourdon’s Anthropology 101 course on race, their experiences with racism in America, and their hopes for an anti­racist future.

Stop by the exhibit to read and listen to our fellow Mercerians’ stories which we hope will move you to reflection, open conversation, and dialogue. At the exhibit, there is a suggestion box.

Please stop by and submit ideas for what you think will make Mercer a more just and equitable place. Those suggestions will be collected by the Diversity and Inclusion Committee and integrated into our overall efforts on campus. Dr. Bourdon is deeply grateful for all of the students who shared their stories and participated in this project.
