CLEMSON — Clemson University will kick off year two of its “Race and the University” series Tuesday with the second annual “See the Stripes Poetry, Music and Dance Fest” at 5:30 p.m. in the open area behind the Hendrix Student Center.

“See the Stripes” is a student-organized event that includes poetry, spoken word, music and dance. Organizers describe the event as “acknowledging Clemson’s complex racial past while celebrating and renewing its commitment to inclusion and diversity today.”

“Race and the University” is a yearlong series of lectures, discussions, performances, exhibitions and other events that aims to foster a campus-wide dialogue about race and diversity at Clemson. The series is sponsored by the College of Architecture, Arts and Humanities and the Diversity Office.
