The Osaze Osagie Memorial Lecture

The Osaze Osagie Memorial Lecture

A New Annual Signature Series on Global Black Communities and Mental Health

Featuring guest speaker Sybrina Fulton, mother of Trayvon Martin

March 20, 2024, will mark the fifth anniversary of the tragic death of Osaze Osagie, a former Penn State student killed by local police during a mental health event. In honor of Osagie’s memory, the Africana Research Center and the College of the Liberal Arts are establishing an annual “Global Black Communities and Mental Health” series. The highlight of the series will be an Osaze Osagie Memorial Lecture featuring a leading domestic or international scholar in areas of race and mental health. The inaugural series event will feature a public conversation with Sybrina Fulton, racial justice activist and mother of Trayvon Martin, a child unjustly killed more than a decade ago.
