Let’s Talk about White Fear
A conversation about life at Loyola in response to the Jordan Davis Verdict
Monday, Feb 24, 2014, noon in CT113 (behind Starbucks)
The Loyola community is invited to come together to discuss the recent mistrial in the murder case against Michael Dunn for killing Jordan Davis. This informal conversation is meant to be an opportunity to process the verdict and think about its connections to and lessons for Loyola, especially toward action-oriented responses. Bring your lunch, if you like.
At least three jurors believed the defense claim that Dunn felt threatened when he shot into the vehicle containing four unarmed African American youth. Let’s talk about white fear—its meaning, its many forms, its power, and its consequences.
