Discussing Racial Disparities in Madison and the Racial Achievement Gap: Bridging the Community and the University
With Reverend Dr. Alexander Gee, Jr. (Founder and President of The Nehemiah Urban Leadership Institute and Senior Pastor and Founder of Fountain of Life Family Worship Center)
“[Addressing issues of racial and ethnic diversity] has been championed by Rev. Alex Gee, who has been an inspiration to me outside of my academic and professional career as a key faith leader in Madison. Recently, Dr. Gee spoke with the Delta program about his “Justified Anger” movement in Madison and outlined how we, as a University, can better address the glaring racial disparities in Madison. Though my time here in Madison is limited, Rev. Gee all but ensured that I will engage with a community like his wherever I end up next.”
