In the wake of George Floyd’s murder and the tensions that have erupted across the country, Dr. Leonard Moore, vice president for diversity and community engagement, has taken his teachings online to share knowledge and resources with the university community.

Most recently, he launched a free online course for faculty and staff titled “The History of the Black Experience,” offering a more nuanced overview of our nation’s long history of racial injustice. The live-streamed videos have attracted over 5,000 viewers are and are available on our YouTube site.

 

 

Last July, Moore presented a webinar to faculty and staff titled “Managing in the Age of George Floyd and Breonna Taylor.” More than 3,300 people tuned into the livestream video, which is available for public viewing on our YouTube site.

 

You can also watch this Zoom video of Moore discussing race and policing with UTPD Chief David Carter and Interim President Jay Hartzell.
