State of State To Host Discussion On Self-Segregation

State of State will host a discussion titled “You Can’t Sit With Us” on self-segregation from 7 to 9 p.m. Thursday, January 18 at Webster’s Bookstore and Cafe downtown.

Penn State professor Jeanine Staples will join State of State for the discussion. Staples is an associate professor of literacy and language, African-American studies, and women’s, gender, and sexuality studies and author of “The Revelations of Asher: Toward Supreme Love in Self.”

The discussion will focus on self-segregation at Penn State and aims to answer the event’s leading question: “Why do we choose to surround ourselves with people who look and act like us instead of branching out and diversifying our lives?” You can RSVP for the discussion on State of State’s Facebook page.

State of State will host its fifth annual conference on Saturday, February 3 in Alumni Hall. This year’s conference, themed “Freedom to Roar,” will feature 10 student speakers as well as faculty, staff, and community speakers who the organization has not yet announced. You can register for the event here.
