Worthy of note? White guests attend black faculty events in larger numbers

The Black Faculty Staff Association of Towson University has hosted two events this semester. During our Feb. 1, Black History Month Kickoff Event, more white men attended the event than black men. In our second event, The Blacksmith Shop, which took place on Feb. 15, half of the participants were from the white community. I thought it would be unfair for me not to make a note of this. Particularly during these times when we so readily talk about and pass on negative alternative facts. I am not sure what is happening. I am, however, sure, that this change is very promising.
