Due to the delayed start of classes until January 18, 2022, this event is postponed and will be rescheduled for a later date.
Sponsored by the Office of Multicultural Affairs, the university will host “The Dream and Work Continues” presentation. The in-person event is open to the public and features LR faculty, staff and students, including the A Cappella Choir singing “Lift Every Voice and Sing,” often referred to as the Black national anthem in the United States. The hymn features lyrics by James Weldon Johnson set to music by his brother J. Rosamond Johnson.
William M. White, chief executive officer and co-founder for The National Diversity Collaborative, Inc., is the keynote speaker for the celebration. A collaborative scholar and practitioner, White co-founded the organization in response to the increased divisiveness in society.
