Resources for Black Students and Allies

We want to make sure everyone is seeing and hearing from Black students, faculty, campus organizations, and national/international societies. We will do our best to update this collection of resources. We welcome suggestions for additions.

This is a documentary that my crew (Paula Mason, Alisyn Don, Megan Elizabeth Bergeron) and I worked really hard on for Documentary Production.

It’s about: the disheartenment felt by black students who don’t see a reflection of themselves within these Predominantly White Institutions, better yet the professors who teach them in their desired fields. It is to show Black students that Black professors are in and aware of this issue, and that they too are aware of the change(s) that are needed for the sake of retaining and recruiting of black staff / faculty so that black students might feel more encouraged by seeing a reflection of themselves in their desired fields
We would’ve loved to have Dr. Shoniqua Roach, as we strongly wanted a Black woman who is also under the LGBTQIA+ community to speak on this matter, as she is departing from the UO, and would’ve been essential to one of our primary points.
However, we are excited to show what we did manage to capture, and hopefully plan on expanding this narrative beyond the time-frame of (10 weeks) we were given.”
