As part of the goal to foster meaningful dialogue on the topic of race relations on campus and in the community, University of Notre Dame students are hosting Race Relations Week 2016.
Led by Notre Dame Student Government and supported by a number of campus organizations, the purpose of Race Relations Week is to offer a variety of opportunities to promote meaningful discourse on racial justice at Notre Dame and in South Bend from a wide range of perspectives.
Race Relations Week begins Oct. 24 (Monday) with a solo drama titled “The Cop,” written by Rev. Harry Cronin, C.S.C., about a police officer who explores his own racism and bias in his professional and personal lives when faced with the unexpected challenge of raising his bi-racial grandchild.
The play will be performed by actor Brad Erickson of Theatre Bay Area from San Francisco, the largest regional theater service organization in North America. The play begins at 7 p.m. and will be performed at Legends. The event is co-sponsored by Campus Ministry and the Center for Social Concerns.
