Unity Through Diversity Week: Dr. Alvin Logan will present “A Tree Without Roots: Protecting Black Spaces in Predominantly White Environments.”
This presentation illuminates the importance of protecting Black spaces on predominately White campuses. We will also grapple with the landscape of higher education, racism, power, and the future of higher education for people of color. The presentation examines Black spaces in higher education through identity development, importance to college success, and other sociocultural implications.
Dr. Logan, originally from Denver, CO, made his way to the Pacific Northwest to attend the University of Washington where he graduated with both a Bachelor’s in Urban Planning and Master’s in Education, and was a student athlete. Since completing his PhD at the University of Texas at Austin, his research and scholarship has revolved around Black males in higher education, with special focus on Black collegiate athletes. He currently adjuncts at Seattle University and the University of Washington in addition to serving as the Director of Student Leadership at Seattle Central College.
