Anne Braden Institute 10th Anniversary and Beyond Vietnam 50th Anniversary read-in
We've got big plans for April 4!
On April 4, 1967, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. delivered the famous "Beyond Vietnam" speech, his most radical critique of racism, militarism, and materialism. On its 50th anniversary, UofL students and faculty will join others around the world to read aloud this historic speech and hold discussions of its powerful meanings for today. We will be reading at two locations on UofL's Belknap campus from 11:30 am - 1:30 pm: Ekstrom Library quad entrance and the Swain Student Activities Center ramp. To read, bring a group, or get involved, contact the Institute at email@example.com or call us at 852-6142.
Then from 4:30 - 6 pm, join us in the Anne Braden Institute for an open house celebrating our 10th Anniversary! On April 4, 2007, Julian Bond cut the ribbon opening our space at Ekstrom Library Room 258, and we welcome all to join us here for food, drink, and celebration of our past decade of bridging the gap between campus research and community activism.
