Awareness : Hate Wall
Location: Hubbard Hall Lobby

Members of the WSU community are encouraged to stop by the Hate Wall, where participants can write words they would like to see eliminated in our community. At the end of the event, students will burn down the hate wall to symbolize the destruction of barriers of racism and stereotypes.

We acknowledge that individuals may be offended by the words scribed on the wall, however, that is exactly the point of the project. Through construction of this display, the OMA hopes that the community will better understand the impact of these words and behaviors and take a stand to eliminate these words from our interactions and conversations.

Contact the Office of Multicultural Affairs for more information at 978-3034 or www.wichita.edu/oma.

For more information, call (316) 978-3034 or email oma@wichita.edu.

Film: The Express
Location: Hubbard Hall, 211

Born into poverty, Ernie Davis overcomes many obstacles to get into Syracuse University's football program. Under the guidance of Coach Ben Schwartzwalder, Davis becomes one of the school's best players, even surpassing Jim Brown's achievements. In 1961 Davis becomes the first black player to win the Heisman Trophy, but there is one more obstacle in his life that he must overcome.

Join the Office of Multicultural Affairs as we watch the film The Express. Following the film, WSU's own legend, Linwood Sexton, will share his stories about the discrimination he experienced and overcame as a student athlete in the 1940s. Sexton was the first African-American to graduate with a bachelor's in education from the Missouri Valley Conference and to be named three times to the MVC All-Conference team in football in the 1940s. Do not miss this dynamic film, and chance to meet one of WSU's trailblazers.
