Culture of Complacency

On June 12, 2019, Shira Greer (‘22) and Jenifer Yi (‘22) conducted an oral history interview with 1999 Richmond College alum Dominic Finney. In this edited piece produced by Shira Greer from the one hour forty minute interview, Dominic discusses the culture of complacency he found among his homogenous peers as both a black and gay student at UR. He ends with compelling advice for current black and LGBT students at UR.
