Water Is Life

Date:  March 21, 2017

Time:  3:30 pm

Summary:  What do people mean when they say, "Water is life"? What do the Black Lives Matter and Dakota Access Pipeline movements have to do with one another or with Duke Energy? What lies ahead for environmental justice in 2017? Join a group of scholars and activists as they discuss the environmental justice movement — globally, nationally, in North Carolina and here at WSSU. The discussion, which is free and open to the public, will be at 3:30 p.m. in Hill Hall, Room L05.


Panelists: Dr. Kyle Mays, postdoctoral fellow in history, the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill; Danielle Purifoy, Ph.D. candidate at the Nicholas School of the Environment, Duke University; the Rev. Dr. Rodney Sadler, associate professor of Bible at Union Presbyterian Seminary. The moderator will be Dr. Corey D.B. Walker, dean of the College of Arts, Sciences, Business and Education, and John W. and Anna Hodgin Hanes Professor of the Humanities, WSSU. The discussion is sponsored by Department of English and the Department of History, Politics, and Social Justice at WSSU.
