Real Talk with Black Alumni

SMU is far from perfect, but the fight to make this predominately white institution more racially equitable is worth it.

This was the sentiment iterated by speakers during the June 24 #StampedeInPlace webinar hosted by the Black Alumni of SMU Board. The collaborative presentation shared the individual perspectives and knowledge of leaders that represent alumni, students, clergy, a counseling professional and a meditation facilitator.

The Black Alumni board along with recognized leaders in the SMU black alumni community D’Marquis Allen ’16 and Anga Sanders ’93, ’99, worked with SMU Alumni Relations staff to create the event. Designed to be an intentional conversation dedicated to healing and learning, the webinar welcomed all Mustangs, past and present, to participate. The SMU Black Alumni Board plan to host more conversations in the near future.
