The Fierce Urgency of Now - A conversation about the moment, the movement, and student development with Dean Blackshear, Dean Smith, and Professor Malone
Is this a moment or a movement? Is "normal" something we want to return to - or even desirable now? This student-centered conversation will explore these questions through MLK's framing of "the fierce urgency of now." Students will critically examine how they see themselves, their dreams, their fears, and their passions in this moment. We will problematize what's working at Duke in terms of the undergraduate experience, what is still in need of transformation, and the "vigorous and positive action" we can take to create an inclusive, equitable, and transformative learning experience for all Duke undergraduates.
