Naomi TutuThe Oakland University Office of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion will welcome race and gender activist Naomi Tutu in an enlightening and engaging webinar set for 10-11:30 a.m. on Wednesday, November 4.

Tutu will talk about the challenges of growing up black and female in apartheid South Africa and how the experience compelled her to become a human rights activist. She will argue that when society accepts situations of oppression, hate and division, society as a whole suffers.

With professional experience ranging from a development consultant in West Africa to a race and gender education program coordinator at the University of Cape Town, Tutu has also taught at the University of Hartford, University of Connecticut and Brevard College in North Carolina. In addition, she served as program coordinator for the historic Race Relations Institute at Fisk University, and was a part of the Institute’s delegation to the World Conference Against Racism in Durban.

Campus community members interested in taking part in the upcoming webinar are asked to register in advance.

Attendees will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the webinar after completing the registration process.
