Cultural Event: MLK Celebration Presentation Which Lives Matter?

As part of the MLK Celebration, the Office of Multicultural and Student Services and Entertainment Unlimited will be hosting a featured presentation entitled “Which Lives Matter?” on Wednesday, January 17th from 7:00 to 8:30pm in the University Center 202. Everyone knows that all lives matter, but the question is do they matter equally? “Which Lives Matter” is an intense, inclusive, educational lecture, intended to build bridges, not walls. Speaker, poet, and activist Monti Washington helps students explore the history, conditioning, stereotypes, and racism that separates and divides our community and nation. He addresses the issues from a social media and social justice perspective. Monti Washington is an author, speaker, actor, playwright, and activist. As a leadership and diversity speaker he has spoken to thousands of students on campuses nationwide, promoting the importance of diversity and inclusion. With spoken word poetry, personal stories, and social media examples, students will learn how they can make a difference on their campus and in their community. By the conclusion of this lecture, students will see that their voices matter, their opinions matter, and most importantly, that “ALL OF THEIR LIVES MATTER.”
