Cultural Diversity Awareness: Perceptions Of Community Residents And Police Personnel, Vickie Minnifield Greene Apr 2020

Cultural Diversity Awareness: Perceptions Of Community Residents And Police Personnel, Vickie Minnifield Greene

Scholar Week 2016 - present

This study examined the difference in self-reported perceptions of cultural diversity awareness between two specific groups, community residents and police personnel, within a Midwestern city’s community and police department. This study also measured how their attitudes related to their likelihood to assist in enhancing the goals of community policing, which includes the prevention of crime.

Innovative Collaboration To Further Community Self-Determination, Matthew Currie, Amaha Sellassie

In order to employ human rights as a source of emancipation, human rights must itself be emancipated—it must be decolonized. Drawing on the notion of 'decoloniality' as a framework that advances radical possibilities by delinking from structural racism, patriarchy and class embedded in capitalism and Western modernity, a typology of human rights as sovereignty, disruption, and tactics is developed as a way of understanding human rights from the position of the colonized.

The Annual Black Intersections Conference

´After adjusting to desegregation era, African-American students are at a split in the road: Where do we go? Since the beginning of time, educational systems have been created and destroyed.

Examining the philosophical, social, and historical facts forced the integration of schools, thus adding onto the beyond reach solution to Black coexistence in America. Brown v. Board of Education attempted to unify American ...
