North Carolina State University will host a panel discussion on racial profiling Tuesday, Sept. 1, from 7 to 8:30 p.m. in the Washington Sankofa Room of the Witherspoon Student Center on NC State’s main campus.
Panelists will include professors from NC State and Duke University, as well as NC State students and campus police officers. The event is being held in hopes of opening dialogue on issues relating to race in light of the recent incident involving Harvard professor Dr. Henry Louis Gates and Cambridge, Mass., police.
Media coverage of the event is invited. The Washington Sankofa Room is room 126 in the Witherspoon Student Center, which is located on the corner of Dan Allen Drive and Cates Avenue.
The panel discussion is co-sponsored by NC State’s student government, University Scholars Program, Office for Equal Opportunity, Campus Police and Office for Diversity and Inclusion.
