Join us for a discussion with U.S. Representative John Lewis, co-author Andrew Aydin and artist Nate Powell on the graphic novel series “March.”
John Lewis is Georgia’s Fifth Congressional District Representative and an American icon, widely known for his role in the Civil Rights movement. The three volumes of “March” capture the events in Mr. Lewis’s life: organizing sit-ins to protest the segregation of lunch counters in Nashville; joining the Freedom Riders to test the Supreme Court decision that outlawed bus segregation; and taking part in the 1963 March on Washington, of which he is the sole surviving speaker.
Please note that at the request of Rep. Lewis, event registration and seating is prioritized for students.

The Samuel E. Kelly Ethnic Cultural Center (Kelly ECC) has taken an active role in creating meaningful programs and inviting prominent speakers to further our core values surrounding Leadership, Education, Advising, Diversity and creating Inclusive Space on campus. In order to host and provide these great programs, we recognize that our success is contingent on the support from our campus partnerships, community collaborations, and student community engagement.
In honoring that tradition of distinguished speakers, this Saturday morning, February 18, 2017, the Kelly ECC will host Brittany Packnett here at the Diversity Leadership Conference from 10:00 AM – 11:30 AM. An activist, former teacher, education executive, and community organizer, Ms. Packnett came to national attention when she, along with other #BlackLivesMatter partner DeRay McKesson, co-founded Campaign Zero which helped turn the #BLM movement into a policy platform to address police violence. Her actions were a significant factor in helping her become part of former President Obama’s Task Force on 21st Century Policing.
We would like to extend to you this personal invitation to join us this Saturday morning for Brittany Packnett’s fireside chat. Members from our team were able to see Brittany present at other national conferences, and they were amazed and moved by her commanding story so we are excited to bring her powerful narrative as a women of color to campus.
To make sure you are able to reserve a seat with us for Saturday, February 18, 2017, please RSVP.
