On April 17, we will host an event in which several speakers will visit us to talk about “How to Sustain an Activist Life.” Speakers will include, among others, Cornel West, Gayatri Chakravorty Spivak, Fazal Sheikh, Liana Theodoratou, and Chris Hedges. Each speaker has been asked to speak for 10-15 minutes on this topic, which seems increasingly timely and pertinent. This event will take place from 5-7pm in McCosh 50.
On April 18, Peter Sellars and “Regg Roc” will be present to help introduce a dance performance by FLEX-N, who have kindly agreed to return and help celebrate this farewell. Several of the dancers will be in residence the entire week of April 17—as will Peter and Reggie—rehearsing and working with students and FLEX-N’s performance will take place on the 18th at 8pm in Richardson Auditorium. This event will be free, but ticketed, and it is also co-sponsored by the Lewis Center for the Arts’ Performance Central Series.
