  • Black Lives Matter Speaker Series -- "Bias in Professionalism" Presented by Sunshine Clemons January 28

    READ MORE

    Africana Studies Program, Presents Black Lives Matter Speaker Series "Bias in Professionalism". Presented by Sunshine Clemons who is a lifelong community advocate, who has spent most of her life in Springfield, since moving from East St. Louis at an early age. Her inspiration for becoming a community-oriented activist, comes in part from her mother who has spent a lifetime working in the local community. This taught her that active involvement in your community means being engaged and involved. Additionally, other activists along the way, have shown her that dedication, sacrifice, and determination are key attributes for fomenting social activism.

    Sunshine co-founded the local Black Lives Matter SPI chapter in Springfield along with Khoran Readus. They were galvanized by the hurt and anger that the murders of Alton Sterling and Philando Castile incited. These tragic events inspired them to lead a rally that eventually led to the creation of the local chapter, with the goal of making a concentrated effort to implement changes to local law enforcement, the community at-large, and the day to day lives of Black people in the city of Springfield.

    Sunshine's main objective is to help create a better relationship between the local community and those who are supposed to support them. Whether it be law enforcement, judicial system, elected officials, business owners, or the everyday citizens who can help implement real and lasting change.

    Sunshine is also a founding member of Springfield Call to Action, a coalition of organizations committed to justice, including racial, religious, gender, economic, social, & environmental.

    Black Lives Matter SPI led by Sunshine and Khoran received the Humanitarian Service Award from The Greater Springfield Interfaith Association and won the readers’ poll category of “Best Affirmation that Black Lives Matter” from the Illinois Times, both in 2020.
