Race and Culture Series
HDFS sponsors a twice a year Race and Culture series that is open to the university and local community. We feature pertinent faculty research, workshops and trainings on issues such as implicit bias and micro-aggressions, and other such topics and relevant movie screenings and discussions. The goal of this series is to stimulate, facilitate and sustain discussions around critical issues pertaining to race, culture and diversity.
The Spring 2020 Race and Culture Series; You Blind? What, You Can’t See That?: Colorblind Attitude and Young Adults’ Activist Behavior , will take place on Tuesday, February 18th at 3:00 p.m. in 220 Alison Hall. UD faculty, students, staff and the community are invited to attend.
Kendell Daughtry’s research interest is centered around critical race theory, ethnic identity development, the continuation of racism and ethnic discrimination through systems (i.e. family, education, policy), its impact on individuals and families and how to combat it. His work You blind? What, you can’t see that?: The impact of colorblind attitude on young adults’ activist behavior against racial injustice and racism in the U.S. was recently published in the Journal of African American Studies. Kendell has conducted multiple original quantitative studies and is currently on a mixed-methods study with Dr. Carey examining how Black boys conceptualize how they matter in their worlds. His work also includes off the mainland projects and community programs in the Virgin Islands.
