ITHACA, NY—Seniors in the Martin Luther King Scholar program at Ithaca College will tell stories of survival, resilience and defiance on Thursday, April 21. Free and open to the public, the program is scheduled for noon in Clark Lounge, Egbert Hall.
Titled “More Than a Story of Oppression,” the presentation will demonstrate — through spoken word and staged interviews — the personal experiences and observations of the MLK Scholars through their four years of their undergraduate studies at Ithaca College. They will share how those experiences have shaped their personal identities as well as their views of social justice issues on both the national and global levels.
The presentation is part of the Ithaca College Center for the Study of Culture, Race, and Ethnicity Discussion Series. For more information, visit www.ithaca.edu/cscre.
