Has Justice Been Served? Reflections on the guilty verdict of Derek Chauvin

Please join Northeastern faculty, student, and staff panelists as they offer reflections on the verdicts, and consider whether or not this moment marks a turning point in the nation’s acknowledgment of and accountability for racial justice. Panelists will also explore what the verdicts may mean for the wider Northeastern community and contemplate how this moment could inform the work begun last summer to create a more inclusive campus.
