“Challenging Dialogues” is a presidential initiative created by Ohio University President M. Duane Nellis to provide an outlet for constructive conversation around topics that spark interest nationally or globally.
As a part of this virtual event, we will collectively watch a 75-minute documentary Emanuel, a film about the 2015 Charleston, SC church shooting that killed nine Black members in an act of terrorism, the history of race relations in Charleston, and the significance of the Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church in the national conversation of race in America today.
Dane Smith '84 (BSC, Organizational Communication), who was the Executive Producer of the film and will moderate a discussion with two individuals who lost family members and one of the shooting survivors.
You will receive a confirmation email upon registration that will include details on how to join this virtual event.
