Through this series, we hope to engage with the university community through a variety of exciting initiatives, including seminars, panel presentations, workshops, training sessions, and film screenings. We invite you to join us for these events where you can interact with Jazmin Long to gain insights into her experience and discuss ways we can collectively contribute to positive change. 


There will be three sessions in the Activist-in-Residence series throughout the spring semester. Please find information on each one below:

  • February 6th 3:30-7PM: Join Jazmin Long for a free film screening, sponsored by University Libraries, of TOXIC: A Black Woman's Story followed by a panel discussion in the KSU Student Center Ballroom Balcony. Reception to immediately follow in the Schwebel Room. To register, please click here
