The Intercultural Center Movement (ICM) is a student movement at Kalamazoo College for interculturalism and antiracism taking place on campus. This year marks the last class at Kalamazoo College to witness and participate in the ICM. With this urgency, the stories, experiences, and strategies (both effective and not) are in dire need of capture and transfer to the younger folks of Kalamazoo College. This event offers space for discussion of these topics amongst the Class of 2018 and other students at Kalamazoo College for the purpose of 1) sharing strategies of the Intercultural Center Movement - both successful and adjustable, 2) giving resources and passing of stories of student movements at K college - through the curriculum and creation of a collective time(un)line, and 3) planning and strategizing for future student movements. There will be a focus on healing, reflecting, and learning surrounding the long radical history of student activism at Kalamazoo College. This event also focuses on building a sustainable network of movement engaged students and alumni doing anti-oppression work, centered on Kalamazoo College students.
