And Dr. King’s presence will be resurrected further through the delivery of one of his great speeches by “Woman-Warrior” & MLK Scholar Amanda Pereira ’15.
It is a distinct honor to announce our keynote address will be delivered by a marvel of Brandeis love, a human embassy of courage, “intelligentsia un gratis” and a living legend of our University family, Brandeis’ first Black Male graduate, Mr. Herman Hemingway. The evening will be hosted by Chad Williams, Ph.D., Chair of the African and Afro-American Studies Department.
Sponsored by MLK Scholars and Friends, the Division of Student Affairs and the Office of Communications.
