(CANCELED): Critical Urban Education Speaker Series: Shawn Ginwright, Healing Centered Engagement
Thank you for your interest in the March 26th CUE Event featuring Shawn Ginwright. We just learned that because of the COVID-19 virus, Montclair State University will be putting classes online for the rest of the semester and canceling events.
In light of this, the 3/26 Shawn Ginwright Lecture will be postponed. While we are sad about this, we know that by minimizing social gatherings, we can participate in slowing the transmission of the virus. We will be in touch about future dates if we are able to reschedule.
Dr. Picower and Dr. Maloney,
Critical Urban Education Speaker Series Coordinators
With an opening performance by the Arts High School Jazz Ensemble
Preregistration is required for this free event
