Three N.C. Universities Join Forces for Racial Justice

The University of North Carolina at Charlotte, Queens University of Charlotte, and historically Black institution Johnson C. Smith University have formed the Charlotte Racial Justice Consortium to support racial healing and transformation in the community.

The initiative aims to discover and publicize Charlotte’s many racial truths, encourage the community to understand its history of race and racism, and develop student, university and community leaders to work across the region toward racial healing and equity.

The consortium will launch the Charlotte Racial Equity Leadership Fellows program of which six students from each of the three campuses will be selected to participate in a yearlong reflection of Charlotte’s history of racism and its connection to each university while exploring racial equity and developing leadership skills.

The fellowship will culminate in unique, student-led projects on the three campuses designed to foster truth, racial healing and transformation.

The consortium will also engage the broader Charlotte community in this work of racial reconciliation. The circles will rotate monthly between the three campuses starting in late summer and welcome community members throughout the city to reflect, share truths and collaboratively create a new racial narrative.
