This Spring’s Conference on World Affairs (CWA) returned in person and featured 100 speakers and performers on the CU Boulder campus. More than a few panels centered anti-racism, youth activism, educational equity, and food justice. We will speak to three CWA panelists who addressed the aforementioned topics, and more. Our three guests: Wisdom Cole, Leo Glaze, and Shawn Walton will share their unique perspectives on the state of their respective communities, the nation, and state of Black youth. We will also explore their perspectives on a host of other issues and have them reflect on the CWA and the time they spent in Boulder.
