The UCSB Black Studies Department extensively focuses on preparing our Majors and Minors for post-graduate success, consistently facilitating guidance and mentorship surrounding student's graduate school opportunities and potential professions. Please join us for a discussion with Black Studies' Scholars: Lauren O'Brien and Jorge Ramirez, as they present their current research.
The goal of Lauren’s research project is to discover how black nationalists and community members have utilized the cultural arts to promote positive self-worth and confidence in black youth.
Jorge’s research attempts to situate the work of the Latino/a community against the Gang Injunction proposal in 2011 and in relation to the wider nation.
