UNO hosting public dialogue about race and diversity
By Katie Knapp
Omaha, NE – UNO's anti-racism public dialogue is an outgrowth of a previous forum on race. Peggy Jones, chair of UNO's Black Studies Program, says the issue has significant local and national relevance, especially with a viable black Presidential candidate. Jones says she hopes the public learns from the dialogue to take a proactive approach to combat racism. The anti-racism public dialogue is from 7:30 AM to 4 PM Saturday at UNO's Milo Bail Student Center.
