UO Common Reading’s theme for 2020-2022 is Listen. Learn. Act. This theme is dedicated to listening to and learning about Blackness and Black experience. The intent is to address historical contexts for racism and biased policies in order to construct more inclusive and viable futures for marginalized people. We look forward to having the opportunity to connect incoming first-year students with the rest of the UO community through conversations, storytelling, and a variety of events throughout the year. We will jump into this experience together by dividing the theme into three segments by term, each focused on a different body of work.
