CAMD Scholar | Killing Us Softly: The Impact of Stereotypes, Stress, and Diet on Low-Income Black and Latinx Students

6:30 p.m. - 8:00 p.m., Kemper Auditorium

A presentation by Chioma Ugwonali ’20

Chioma's paper, "Killing Us Softly: The Impact of Stereotypes, Stress, and Diet on Low-Income Black and Latinx Students," advised by Dr. Marisela Ramos, explores themes of food injustice, red-lining and housing inequality, and schooling: all systemic lenses on poverty in American cities. Next Friday, she will hone in on food injustice in particular for an interactive presentation.

Following up on last spring's Food Justice Symposium (sponsored by CAMD and Brace), Chioma invites our community to engage in activities that highlight the ways in which a variety of factors around food contribute to cycles of poverty, stereotypes, and other structural disadvantages. Open to the public; refreshments served.
