Be a voice, not an echo: A talk by Sharon Cooper

Saturday January 30, 5:00PM

@ Red Emma's

Join us for an intimate discussion with Sharon Cooper, sister of the late Sandra Bland as she shares her personal journey towards becoming a social activist in the wake of her sister's tragic, untimely death.  Passionate about the empowerment of fellow citizens through mentorship and education, prepare yourself for an engaging conversation with Mrs. Cooper regarding current civil rights and social issues as well as how you can harness the power that lives within YOUR VOICE to address the ongoing racial inequities within minority communities specifically related to the deprivation of civil liberties and fundamental integrity.  Co-sponsored by UMBC and the Department of American Studies and doctoral program in Language, Literacy, and Culture.
