Prescott College To Host Virtual Master’s Colloquium “Justice in 2020” November 13-14

Prescott College’s Annual Master’s Colloquium is set for November 13-14, 2020 and will feature an exciting line-up of presentations, workshops, and discussions. Prescott College is proud to welcome Andrea Ritchie—a nationally recognized expert and commentator who works with groups across the country to support campaigns to end profiling, police violence criminalization, mass incarceration, and deportation—as the 2020 Master’s Colloquium keynote speaker. The Colloquium, which is traditionally an on-campus event, will be held virtually this year.

A Statement from President John Flicker

We are dismayed to see the ugly racist messages circulating on social media in our community about Patrisse Cullors, a member of our faculty at Prescott College. Patrisse is a professional artist and educator living in Los Angeles who is the Faculty Director of our online Master of Fine Arts program. Her inspiring work is recognized across the globe and we are honored that she is a part of the Prescott Community.  She is also a co-founder of Black Lives Matter.
