Kamau Bell; Dr. Mae Jemison; LaToya Ruby Frazier; and Michelle Alexander. These virtual events are created exclusively for UCSB Arts & Lectures and can be purchased by anyone, anywhere.

EDUCATIONAL AND COMMUNITY IMPACT 

Paramount to Arts & Lectures is amplifying Race to Justice’s impact In the community. An extensive educational and community outreach schedule will be integrated with Race to Justice programming, providing additional opportunities for UCSB students and members of the community to engage with the speakers and creators and their ideas. 

For virtual events taking place from February through March, Race to Justice speakers will be meeting virtually with UCSB students from across the campus. 

In addition, UCSB Arts & Lectures’ Thematic Learning Initiative is creating FREE opportunities for further engagement through partnerships with Santa Barbara County organizations focused on human services, at-risk populations and leadership, as well as tools for interested individuals and small groups to further explore race in society and promote racial equality. Members of the community interested in the Thematic Learning Initiative can learn more about how to participate in Race to Justice activities throughout Santa Barbara County atwww.thematic-learning.org
