A Catholic college hosted a “black male appreciation luncheon” Monday as part of a slew of diversity and inclusion events.

The Office of Intercultural Engagement at the Jesuit school Marquette University in Milwaukee, Wis., hosted the luncheon, that was “designed to acknowledge the status of African-American male youth by addressing the following questions: ‘Where have we been? & Where are we going?'” according to The College Fix.

“The focus of my talk will be rooted in equity and the analysis of the conditions that exist that produce/maintain social injustices for Black and Latino males in Milwaukee,” Samuel Lee Coleman, the event’s keynote speaker, told The College Fix. “This event will be particularly important for those in academic programs or professional fields that serve social-economically vulnerable residents in Milwaukee.”

The Center for Intercultural Engagement lists other identity-based events on an online calendar, including an LGBTQ+ speaker series, a “Latinx” student identity and leadership conference, and an Indigenous People’s Day event on Columbus Day.

The Daily Caller News Foundation reached out to Marquette University for comment, but received none in time for publication.
