DULUTH – UMD held its 2014 Summit on Equity, Diversity and Multi–culturalism Tuesday.
It's designed to invite students and community members to engage in topics about race, class, gender and sexual orientation.
More than 20 workshops were set up for the day–long event, to take a deeper look into subjects of sexual identity, racial inequality and white privilege.
"At UMD it's a predominately white campus, Duluth is a predominately white city but that's not the way it is in other parts of the U.S., in other parts of the world,” UMD Diversity Commission Chair Chris Davila said. “So it's a great opportunity to prepare for this ever changing world."
Angela Davis, a world–renowned author, educator and political activist was the summit's keynote speaker.
