Discovering Critical Race Theory
Tuesday, June 29th at 7 – 8:15 pm via Zoom!
Explore Critical Race Theory and what it means for society and you in a conversation led by PSU Alum Rachel Guldin. Rachel is a doctoral candidate of Communication & Media Studies in the School of Journalism and Communication at the University of Oregon. She employs critical theory and Critical Race Theory to think about media literacy education and it’s implications for democracy. A former public school teacher, her work is driven by her time teaching in a deeply inequitable school system and her belief in the need for large social, cultural and systemic changes.
Rachel is a 2009 and 2011 graduate of Penn State who was active in the life of Lutheran Student Community and played trumpet in the Blue Band while at Penn State. She brings the perspective of a person of faith who is passionate about justice, truth-telling, and change in our culture and its systems. Rachel is pretty sure Jesus would be flipping more than tables in the market if he were walking through the US today. She loves waterfalls and Death By Chocolate ice cream, wears Chaco sandals from March through October, and adores baking — her favorite artistic medium is icing.
