Cal State San Bernardino students will host the second “Conversations on Race and Policing” panel discussion at 4 p.m. Wednesday, June 10, on Zoom.

The program can be accessed on Zoom from a PC, Mac, Linux, iOS or Android at

The panel discussion and conversation comes in the aftermath of the death of a Minneapolis, Minn., man in police custody. A video of the incident posted on social media – the man, George Floyd, is black and the officer is white – has led to widespread protests, the firing of four police officers, the arrest of one officer on a second-degree murder charge, and the other three with aiding and abetting second-degree murder.

The incident is the latest in which race and policing have become a source of major debates, if not flashpoints for protests.

The June 10 event, hosted by CSUSB students Marlo Brooks and Kameron Pyant, will include discussion of issues related to racism, racial violence, police brutality, and their impact on the community. Panelists will include students, faculty, staff, administrators, and campus guests and topics will range from institutional racism and history, to community responses to police violence, and campus support resources.

Scheduled panelists are:

  • Rafik Mohamed, dean of the CSUSB College of Social and Behavioral Sciences;
  • Kathryn Ervin, professor of theatre arts;
  • Alexis Norris and Zachary Powell, assistant professors of criminal justice;
  • Anthony Roberson, associate director of operations in the Santos Manuel Student Union; and
  • Marc Robinson, assistant professor of history.

Representatives of the Westside Action Group will also join the conversation. Like previous events in this series of campus conversations, this “Conversations on Race and Policing” will be recorded and posted at the CSUSB History Club YouTube page.
