Share Your Story: Celebrating Identity is a campus wide initiative. The event is a collaborative effort between a variety of Marist student clubs, faculty, and administrators. Through interactive activities and a motivational speaker, participants will be able to come together and vocalize what makes them unique. Dr. Khuram Hussain from Hobart and William Smith Colleges will be the guest speaker.
Dr. Khuram Hussain is an associate professor in the Department of Education at Hobart and William Smith Colleges in Geneva, NY where he also serves as a facilitator for Tools for Social Change - a community and campus collaboration that draws on the power of intergroup dialogue to develop a collective movement for urban justice.
Khuram completed his Ph.D. in the Cultural Foundations of Education at Syracuse University. His current scholarship explores the radical origins of multicultural education and contemporary grassroots anti-racist movements that resist neoliberal school reform. His book, Weapons for Minds: The Political Imagery of Muhammad Speaks, 1960 - 1975, is under contract with Johns Hopkins University Press for a 2017 publication.
