Lauretta SiggersWhat is your role at the college?   

Vice President of Human Resources and Talent Development, as well as Faculty.

Who or what has inspired you?  

Rosa Parks, the "first lady of civil rights" and "the mother of the freedom movement", is someone who has inspired me.  She stood up for what was right and was not afraid to speak up.

What does racial equity and social justice mean to you?

To me, while different in its meaning, both racial equity and social justice means everyone is treated fairly and equally no matter what circumstances are being presented.  It means that black people should not be diminished because of the color of their skin and should be given the same opportunities. 

What is your favorite book, poetry, documentary or other resource on Black history? 

Phenomenal Women, by Maya Angelou, this poem is a classic that deals with every woman in the world. This poem shows that beauty is compared by what society thinks a woman should looked like, walk and talk, etc. A woman's inner beauty makes a women whole and beautiful.

When I dream in Black…

I am reminded about how many blacks have been killed.  I pray for my sons and grandsons for their safety and can only hope for a better world for this next generation.
