On the evening of the historic 2008 election, the Toni Morrison Society and the Center for the Study of Race Ethnicity and Gender sponsored a campus-wide open house for the new Toni Morrison Society followed by a dinner conversation about the intricacies of race, gender and age as they intersect with the 2008 Presidential Campaign.

Faculty members James Peterson, Tia Stokes Brown, Robin Jacobson, Carmen Gillespie, and Provost Mick Smyer provided their insights and then opened up the conversation.
