Canisius hosted several events as part of the city’s “5/14 Remembrance Weekend: Reflection, Healing & Hope,” formed by Mayor Byron Brown to honor and memorialize the lives lost, and support and pray for all those impacted by the racially-motivated shooting at the Tops Friendly Markets store on the East Side of Buffalo.

On Saturday, May 13, “Turning Trauma into Triumph” was held on the Canisius campus. The event, coordinated by Zeneta Everhart ’11, included conference sessions, a reading by Poet Jillian Hanesworth, a musical performance by Drea D’Nur, African drummers and more.
