Social Innovation Student Shares Personal Experience with Race and Racism in Research Article

Naomi Silas, a graduate student and grad assistant in the Professional Master’s in Social Innovation program, wrote an article, "Community Activism in Response to Dehumanization & Policing Methods," based on research conducted in a Fall 2019 Social Innovation course. The article, which was published on Medium, includes a narrative of Silas' personal experience with race and racism. Silas writes, "Social and community activism has propelled the Black Lives Matter movement forward. I’m filled with hope because the conversation has been centered around Black Lives Matter. More people are listening, and more people are educating themselves."
