Delta State University is a cultural “mecca” that champions and celebrates the multicultural identity of the Mississippi Delta, and provides leadership and programming for the community and region. The goals of “Winning the Race” are to facilitate engaged campus and community dialogue regarding current issues related to education and to rekindle opportunities for municipalities of the Mississippi Delta to collaborate and promote racial healing.

We aim to:

Engage

in conversations with campus and community constituencies that will build an appreciation for diversity differences and a spirit of community through shared ideas.

Promote

a broad discourse on race relations by building conversations to bring together diverse communities in the Delta through sharing of ideas and building cooperation.

Rekindle

a hope that Delta Communities will move toward greater equality, forward and open thinking, while reducing racial disparities and tensions.
