College Lecture Series ‘Murder In Paradise’

November 23, 2022 | 0 Comments

The second and final part of the Bermuda College Fall Lecture Series, Murder in Paradise returns November 29, with a “draft working document presenting the causes and solutions to this provocative topic.”

A spokesperson said, “Necheeka Trott, President of the Faculty Association working in conjunction with the Lecture Series Committee said this final instalment would complete the multi-faceted perspective on this chronic and complex issue of the young Black male homicide crisis plaguing our community.”

“There will be two presentations: Ras Mykkal, social commentator and community activist; and Camille Creary, a passionate social worker and advocate for those entangled in systemic social injustice. They will each bring their expertise and unique personal perspective to the topic, having worked among this particular demographic on a day-to-day basis.

“We thought it important to bring as wide a perspective on this issue as possible to ensure this is not just an academic exercise, but one that is community-based and community-focused,” she said.

The spokesperson said, “In September the Lecture Series featured an integrated panel discussion of academic minds, and the judiciary but also heard from incarcerated perpetrators of crime, and a crime victim. In a promised follow-up t to the first public forum, the focus is turned to the possible social causes and community solutions which will be presented in a working document next Tuesday evening, in what organisers promise be an engaging, interactive session.

“The in-person event takes place Tuesday, November 29 at 6 p.m. in the North Hall Lecture Theatre G301. It will also be livestreamed on the College’s YouTube channel and Facebook platform.”
