Halloween Reminders;

A new campaign, We’re A Culture, Not A Costume, popped up this year around October 21st, and was created by a student organization at Ohio University called “Students Teaching Against Racism in Society” (S.T.A.R.S.) Their main goal was to raise awareness about the problems with racially insensitive Halloween costumes. On October 21st, the president of S.T.A.R.S. posted a few images on her blog [ featured above ], and the campaign took off. Learn more about it here.

Remember students that Halloween is meant to be a fun holiday in which you can dress up and celebrate a night of both tricks and treats. Despite this fact, we should definitely be careful about what we dress up as. Keep yourselves informed and aware and have a happy Halloween this weekend!

    Hey Izzy! Love reading your blog….great job….enjoying it so much both because I really get an inside look at who that little girl that I first met back at Seaview has grown up to be ~ and because it back some many memories of my own college days, thoughts and feelings. Thanks for putting it out there!
