President Harris reflects on race, power and privilege with CBS6

Publication Date

President David R. Harris recently announced a new initiative that will engage the campus community on issues of race and privilege in the country and at Union.

The President’s Initiative on Race, Power and Privilege comes in the wake of nationwide protests sparked by the death last month of George Floyd, an unarmed black man killed by a white police officer in Minneapolis. Protesters have voiced their anger and frustration with systemic racism, police brutality and social inequality and have demanded change.

Harris shared his thoughts on the initiative and current events with Liz Bishop of CBS-6, the local CBS affiliate.
