The 2021 virtual conference “Winning the Race: Make the Invisible, Visible,” will highlight systems and cultural norms that insulate stereotypes and inequalities and challenge the way things have always been done!” This conference was developed with three overarching goals: engage in conversations with campus and community constituencies; promote a broad discourse on race relations; and to rekindle a hope that Delta communities will move toward greater equality.
