This year, in observation of the annual event previously known as Diversity Day, CSW community members engaged in an Identity Exploration Day series, which kicked off with a moving keynote from Terrence Roberts of the Little Rock Nine. Roberts discussed his childhood growing up in Little Rock, Arkansas, and his journey through this pivotal moment in history, framed by the context of today. Watch Terrence James Roberts address our community here.

Together in advisory groups, students processed Roberts's words and created an "identity molecule," to more fully understand the intersectionality of race and other aspects of their identities. Students also explored the documentary Little White Lie, and read and discussed the story of Lacey Schwartz (who directed the film), as an example of someone coming to terms with their racial identity.
