HLC Quality Initiative slideshow and panel discussion to take place tomorrow

As part of its Higher Learning Commission’s Quality Initiative, Marshall University will present a slide show and panel discussion Wednesday, Oct. 19, at 5:30 p.m. at the Visual Arts Center’s Carroll Gallery in Huntington.

The topic of the slideshow and panel discussion is “From Restrictive Covenants to Redlining: An Interdisciplinary Art and Social Sciences Investigation of Housing Practices in 20th Century Working-Class Huntington, West Virginia, and Dayton, Ohio.”

Featured panelists will include Dr. Cicero M. Fain III, a visiting diversity scholar and assistant provost for inclusive excellence at Marshall; Dr. Jacqueline Housel, professor of geography at Sinclair College in Dayton, Ohio; and Sarah McDermott, assistant professor of printmaking at Marshall.

The presentation is an extension of Fain’s inaugural lecture in August on his book, Black Huntington: An Appalachian Story, and is part of the quality initiative’s overall first-year theme, Complexities of Identity.

Media and the public are welcome and invited to attend. To view a livestream of the event, visit https://www.marshall.edu/livestream.
