About this event

ACCEPT (a.k.a. Admissions Community Cultivating Equity & Peace Today) is following up this summer's popular Being Black in College webinar series with a fall series! Once again, the series is specifically curated to the needs and experiences Black high school students and the adults who support them. This 90-minute session will end with Q&A so attendees can ask questions specific to their own journeys to college.

Whether or not you consider yourself an activist as a high school student, world events, the 2020 elections, and the variety of conversations taking place in a college community could inspire or further your sense of volunteerism on behalf of a cause that you believe in. Panelists will explore how college activism by Black individuals and groups operate differently on-campus, off-campus, and online. Listen to advice for young Black activists regarding self-care, safety, peer accountability, plugging into and amplifying a movement, knowing your civic and on-campus rights, and activism’s potential to strengthen communities and one’s sense of connection to it.

This session will be moderated by Dr. Ashley Bennett, Director of College Counseling at KIPP Sunnyside High School (TX) and the presenters are:

  • Naomi Brown-Jones: Academic Counselor, MassBay Community College (MA)
  • Andrea Williams: CEO and Lead Academic Consultant of CultivatED Academy & PhD Student at U of South Florida
