Blackballed: A Lecture on Campus Racism
Lawrence Ross | @alpha1906

Racism and college students. Every year, whether via racist social media posts, or wearing blackface at “Crips & Bloods” Halloween parties, racism on campus has a detrimental effect not only to minority students, but also on the white students who perpetuate it. This lecture on campus racism is a frank look at how a legacy of white racial supremacy in the United States led to incidents like fraternity members singing about lynching black people, the events in Charlottesville, VA, and other examples of racism that have occurred on college campuses.

This program operates under the premise that you’re not responsible for your actions if you’re ignorant of why something is racist. However, you are responsible if you do understand, and you do the racist act anyway…or if you remain quiet. As a result, fraternity and sorority members at AFLV will learn about their own organization’s legacy of racism, while getting a call to action to change that legacy to being anti-racist. The choice is your's.

Better Fraternity; Better You
Lori Hart | @drlorihart

At a time when people are calling for a "culture change" in the fraternity and sorority community, it's hard for student leaders to figure out exactly how to fix the issues or understand the complexity of the problems. What are we really trying to change? Why does change feel so difficult within our communities? How do we create a better fraternity and sorority experience?

The answers to these questions might be simpler than we believe. Until we engage and challenge the members to higher expectations, we cannot expect our communities to improve. This keynote will be interactive, fun, focused on research and theory and provide participants with a whole different way of thinking. We can create better communities, but the change starts with YOU.
