Follow Winning The Race On Social Media

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: Intersections in Action: The Quest for Equity, Access, and Justice” are to examine the many ways in which race intersects and impacts various areas of our collective and individual lives, facilitate engaged campus and community dialogue in race relations, and to rekindle opportunities for municipalities of the Mississippi Delta to collaborate and promote racial healing.

We aim to:


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


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


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

Onsite registration and conference events will begin in the Bologna Performing Arts Center March 26, 2018.
