Black Lives Matter: An Evening with Co-founder Alicia Garza

From its roots as an online rallying call protesting police shootings of young people of color, Black Lives Matter is now a vibrant social justice movement with global reach. Co-Founder Alicia Garza will share the story of transforming a Twitter hashtag into real life activism. This event will help position the Black Lives Matter movement within its larger political, social and cultural landscape, and amplify the ways everyday people can most effectively enact social change.

Co-sponsored by the University Library, Dean of Students, Office of Undergraduate Studies, College of Education, Health & Human Services, Department of Sociology, Department of Social Sciences, College of Humanities, Arts, Behavioral and Social Sciences.
