On April 4, 2007, Julian Bond cut the ceremonial ribbon at Room 258 of Ekstrom Library, marking the official opening of the Anne Braden Institute for Social Justice Research.

April 4, 2017, marks the 10th anniversary of that occasion, as well as the 50th anniversary of Dr. Martin Luther King delivering his powerful “Beyond Vietnam” speech.

To commemorate both of these events, the ABI will be sponsoring a “Beyond Vietnam” read-in on the Ekstrom Library quad and the Student Activites Center bridge of the UofL Belknap campus, from 11:30 AM-1:30 PM.

From 4:30-6 PM, we will host a 10th Anniversary Open House in the ABI to celebrate 10 years of bridging the gap between academic research and community activism. Join us for food, drinks, and community. All are welcome.
