Utica NAACP’s Dietra Harvey to Discuss Critical Citizenship
Dietra Harvey, chair of the Utica NAACP, will give a lecture at Hamilton College on Wednesday, Sept. 12, at 4:15 p.m., in the Red Pit, Kirner-Johnson Building. Her talk is titled “More than just some Facebook posts: Voting as an act of critical citizenship.” Sponsored by the Days-Massolo Center, the lecture is free and open to the public.
Harvey will lead a discussion addressing the following: What does critical citizenship look like in the age of online movements? At a time when many people limit their political involvement to online posts only, how can we engage in deep dialogue, and commit to being more active participants in the political process?
The Days-Massolo Center, which opened in 2011, aims to promote diversity awareness and foster dialogue among the many diverse groups on campus.
