Social Justice Day
Date: Tuesday, November 14th
Time: 1:00 PM – 2:00 PM
Location: Gateway Building-Davis Auditorium
This lecture based co-curricular event with Academic Affairs and guest speaker Dennis Febo. Dennis is a native of Brooklyn, New York, raised in many different parts of the United States and Puerto Rico. While growing in such diverse and disparate communities, many experiences with poverty, racism and prejudice, and not being able to comprehend such disparities, gave him a universal outlook on life. During his teenage years, he took on the goal of uplifting human beings to enact their true potential, through education on social consciousness and culture. From this work, Dennis has developed a social justice center workshop centered on mass incarceration as a practical means to discussing racial inequality and the need for social just efforts. His presentation will focus on the work he currently does within the prison system and sub topics such as the race theory, New Jim Crow and the 13th Amendment (the Netflix documentary) which WCC recently focused on during Constitution day as an institution.
