Saints Against Racism Book Giveaway
04/18/2023 - 5:00pm to 7:00pm
Overcoming racial injustice and building genuine equality is a long-term struggle and requires that we all pull together in both large and small ways. Carroll's Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion taskforce wants to recognize and celebrate the anti-racist work that happens day-to-day on our campus. And!... we have free books to give away (summer reading anyone?)
Here's how it works:
Send us a copy of (or link to) any essay, artwork, podcast, creative writing, poem, video, musical composition, or course assignment that works in some way to understand or overcome racial injustice. There's nothing too big or small to qualify! Send these via email to Prof. Meyer (email@example.com) with "Saints Against Racism" in the Subject line by April 18th. In the email, be sure to include your name and a title for the work. That's it!
Invite your friends and classmates to submit their work if you know they've done this kind of work this year.
We will collect the anti-racist work you all have done on campus this semester and enter each student who submits work into a drawing for the free books (ten of them). Winning students will be notified and can collect their books in the last week of class.
Then, we will celebrate and recognize Carroll student's anti-racist work by listing student names and the titles of their work on the college's webpage. We won't share the content of your work publicly (beyond the title) without asking directly for your permission.
Thanks to President Cech and to Montana Book Co. on the gulch for contributing to this project.

Mark Johnson: Chinese Experience in Montana
04/18/2023 - 7:00pm to 9:00pm
Join Carroll College on April 18, 2023 at 7:00 p.m. in the Lower Campus Center as author and historian Mark Johnson presents "The Middle Kingdom under the Big Sky: A History of the Chinese Experience in Montana."
From the earliest days of non-Native settlement of Montana, when Chinese immigrants made up more than 10 percent of the territory’s population, Chinese pioneers played a key role in the region’s development. But this population, so crucial to Montana’s history, remains underrepresented in historical accounts, and popular attention to the Chinese in Montana tends to focus on sensational elements—exoticizing Chinese Montanans and distancing their experiences from our modern understanding. The Middle Kingdom under the Big Sky recovers the stories of Montana’s Chinese population in their own words and deepens understanding of Chinese experiences in Montana with a global lens.
Author and Historian Mark Johnson has mined several large collections of primary documents left by Chinese pioneers, translated into English for the first time. These collections, spanning the 1880s-1950s, provide insight into the pressures the Chinese community faced—from family members back in China and from non-Chinese Montanans—as economic and cultural disturbances complicated acceptance of Chinese residents in the state. Through their own voices, Johnson reveals the agency of Chinese Montanans in the history of the American West and China.
Free and open to the public.
