Tim Wise, anti-racism activist and writer, will speak at Gallaudet University on Tuesday, November 13 from 12:30-1:50 pm. The topic is “Slavery, Emancipation, and the Residual Impact of Slavery on the African American Community Today.” Mr. Wise’s presentation will be followed by a book signing and reception.
The event is free, open to the public, and will be held in the Swindell Auditorium at the Gallaudet University Kellogg Conference Hotel.
Gallaudet University, in partnership with Giant food and the 5th District Police Department, is holding a “Full Plate” food drive. A Giant food truck will be parked on campus, and the goal is to fill it up and then donate to those in need. If you’d like to donate non-perishable food items, you can head to Elstad Auditorium or drop them off to the truck, which will be parked near the 8th St. and Florida Ave. gate 10:00 am – 3:00 pm.
