Faculty, staff, and students are invited to a special lecture by Alicia Garza, social activist and co-creator of the #BlackLivesMatter movement on Thursday, March 9 at 7 p.m. in the Shalala Student Center Grand Ballroom. As co-founder of Black Lives Matter, Garza has helped transform what was once a viral hashtag and social media force into a grassroots national organization and global human rights movement. In her talks, Garza shares her unflinching call to action against discrimination in the U.S. while galvanizing individuals to fight for freedom and justice for all black lives. The lecture will be followed by a question-and-answer session and is free of charge.
This event is sponsored by the Office of the Provost, the Division of Student Affairs, the Department of Student Life, Multicultural Student Affairs, and Housing & Residential Life.
