The Wesleyan community will gather to honor the civil rights legacy of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. on Friday, January 31st from 12:15pm-1:15pm in Crowell Concert Hall. This year our keynote speaker will be writer, producer, and activist, Bree Newsome .Bree Newsome is an artist who drew national attention in 2015 when she climbed the flagpole in front of the South Carolina Capitol building and removed a confederate battle flag that was originally raised in 1961 as a racist statement of opposition to the Civil Rights Movement and lunch counter sit-ins occurring at the time. Newsomes act of defiance against the culture of white supremacy has been memorialized in photographs, artwork and film and has become a symbol of resistance and the empowerment of women. The commemoration is open to all students, faculty, staff, and Middletown community members. Supervisors are asked to allow theirstaff members to attend and actively participate.
