Social Workers: Building Resilience in a Time of Uncertainty

8:15-8:45 a.m.: Registration

8:45-9:00 a.m.: Welcome

Speakers: IUSSWAA President Wendy Arnold and Dean Tamara Davis

9:00-10:30 a.m.: Keynote: "Hoosiers and the Long Struggle for Racial Equality" 

Speaker:  Dr. James Madison

Dr. James Madison will analyze the challenges of racial segregation and discrimination in Indiana over the last two centuries. From the state’s 1816 constitutional restriction on African American voting, to segregation of schools, hotels, and swimming pools, the tragedies of lynchings, and the rise of the Ku Klux Klan, Hoosiers have faced conflict and division. Always, however, there were voices calling for justice and equality, especially during the civil rights movements of the 1960s. Participants will learn parts of our history that are often ignored, consider ways to connect our past to the present, and glimpse the challenges that face all of us.
