Recent incidents at San Jose State University have exposed the racial tensions in Santa Clara County. Ms. McKee-Stovall gives us her perspective on these incidents while addressing larger issues as well.
Delorme McKee-Stovall is an award winning social justice professional with degrees in nursing and religious studies. She is a beloved wife and mother who reciprocates that love and pride in her husband and adult children. As the current Manager of the Santa Clara County Office of Human Relations she is charged with creating a vision and managing best practices that promote positive intergroup relations, prejudice reduction and the transformation of conflict into opportunities that improve respect and understanding between people.
In her own words: I will be sharing my personal story, how I arrived some 40 years ago, how my experience as an African-American professional, parent and wife residing in SJ mirrors that of other African-American families residing here, and how it interfaces with the recent hate crime and campus climate of SJSU and the larger problem of a unique form of West Coast systemic response to African-American.
