An Indianapolis university founded by an abolitionist will launch a gathering place to bring students, faculty, staff, and the community together for dialogue on racial equity. Butler University is launching a Hub for Black Affairs and Community Engagement.
Professor of Political Science in Peace & Conflict Studies Terri Jett will be its faculty director. She spoke with WFYI's Terri Dee by phone, to observe social distancing, and she says it will be a gathering place for learning, growing, and building a bridge for better understanding.
The hub is scheduled to open in Fall 2021 and will serve as Butler University’s command center to address racism and Black oppression.
