Whether we intentionally design our courses to address issues of diversity (i.e., race/ethnicity, social class, gender, sexual orientation, religion, politics, etc.) or not, topics and discussion related to diversity are a reality in the classroom. Students in our classrooms are diverse and bring their diverse experiences with them, and we as faculty bring our own perspectives and cultural experiences to the classroom. Many times, we are hesitant to introduce these topics and don’t know how to manage them when these exchanges do occur. This workshop will not only provide an opportunity to examine strategies to steer such topics in a positive direction, it will encourage discussion of such topics in ways that bring relevance to course material and facilitate growth and learning for everyone.

The KSU Safe Space Initiative is a campus-wide initiative that offers a visible message of inclusion, acceptance, and support to lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender individuals. The goal of the Safe Space Initiative at KSU is to identify and educate individuals who will affirm and support all persons regardless of sexual orientation and gender identity/expression. Displaying the Safe Space logo sends a message to students, faculty and staff that the person posting this logo supports the equal treatment of gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender persons.
KSU faculty and staff can acquire a Safe Space sticker by attending one of the scheduled Safe Space orientations.

Nearly two-thirds of students who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transgender (LGBT) report feeling unsafe at school because of their sexual orientation and/or gender expression. Sadly, the harassment they face is not just initiated by fellow students, as various members of the school community make (or silently condone through inaction) homophobic remarks such as “faggot” or “dyke” or “that’s so gay.”

A hundred years ago, in communities across the U.S., white residents forced thousands of black families to flee their homes. Even a century later, these towns remain almost entirely white. BANISHED tells the story of three of these communities and their black descendants, who return to learn their shocking histories.

In Forsyth County, Georgia, where a thousand black residents were expelled, the film explores the question of land fraudulently taken, and follows some descendants in their quest to uncover the real story of their family's land. In Pierce City, Missouri, a man has designed his own creative form of reparation—he wishes to disinter the remains of his great-grandfather, who was buried there before the banishment. And in Harrison, Arkansas, home to the headquarters of the Ku Klux Klan, a white community struggles with their town's legacy of hate.
