About Race and Reconciliation Initiative

RRI Ramp Up Keynote webinar – What Happened in Tulsa?
Starting with the fall 2020 semester, the Race and Reconciliation Initiative (RRI) will commit its first year to research focusing primarily on Black Americans and TCU’s experiences with racism, slavery and the Confederacy. Other identities will be addressed in year two. This academic endeavor will draw upon a number of our existing programs to raise awareness of racism and inequality, helping us work toward a campus culture where everyone is respected and valued. RRI also will immediately open channels of communication with the broader TCU community through the placement of signage next to the statue of Addison and Randolph Clark, TCU’s founders, both to signal the start of the initiative and to encourage continued community engagement. In recognizing that this is merely the first step of many, a final report and recommendations from the first year of inquiry will include modeling how to explore other identities in the university’s shared history.
