On February 25, 2021, Our commission hosted our third Maroon Table Talk in collaboration with Prairie View A&M in honor of Black History Month. Students from both Texas A&M and Prairie View engaged in meaningful discussion after hearing from the incredible Dr. Malachi Crawford. During the event, Dr.Crawford covered various topics ranging from black history to what it means to be black. We hope that this event will be the first of many collaborations with Prairie View A&M!
The goal of “Maroon Table Talk: Black History Month” is to engage in a dynamic conversation about race and ethnicity, racism on campus, and racial injustices occurring throughout our world today. We want to allow the student body to voice their concerns and opinions, and know that they are heard. We hope that students, staff, and faculty from varying perspectives participate in this very much-needed conversation.
