Extending the Theme Across City Tech
Prof. Dionne Bennett developed the theme “What does Freedom Mean” for the African American Studies Department’s year-long 2014-2015 theme. When the General Education Committee expressed a need for a cogent and enthralling theme for the Pilot, Dr. Marta Effinger-Crichlow graciously invited us to utilize the theme.

The Theme Pilot subcommittee was then formed by volunteers from the larger General Education Committee. We made sure to have at least two professors from each school. The volunteers each took the theme back to their classes and had their student do one assignment dealing with that idea. The student work was aggregated into a presentation which was presented by Prof. Julian Williams during the Black Solidarity Day celebration.
