TCU Race & Reconciliation Initiative

Reconciliation Day (April 21, 2021)

What is Reconciliation Day? A day where we as a TCU community can come together so we can move forward together. We will gather in the open area between Mary Couts Burnett Library and the Clark Brothers Statue.

The day will be structured in three different phases:

  • 11 a.m. - Noon – Contemplation
    • We will have spoken word and live musical performances as we reflect upon our past
  • Noon - 1 p.m. – Commemoration
    • We will share what we presently know after our first year in operation as the Race & Reconciliation Initiative
  • 1 p.m. - 2 p.m. – Celebration
    • We will promote goodwill and future fellowship through shared positive experiences

During the Commemoration portion of the program, Team RRI plans to publicly explore the following components:

  • Research – We will share key historical uncovered/discovered facts that we plan to bring to light
  • Recommendations – We will outline the recommendations for future change formally submitted (but not yet acted/voted upon) to the TCU Board of Trustees
  • Results – We will highlight changes already made within the past academic year and currently underway in the name of reconciliation

Don't miss out on the action!

Frederick W. Gooding, Jr., Ph.D. (aka Dr. G), chair of the Race & Reconciliation Initiative
