Keeping the Dream Alive
The Center for Academic Engagement invites you to participate in the annual MLK Jr. events to continue the work and remember the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Please join us to honor Dr. King's vision of a just society, grounded in community collaboration, as well as to reflect on historical and contemporary issues of race, class, social justice, diversity and societal change.
Volunteers are needed to help out in the Vermillion community!

Negin Farsad - Social Justice Comedian, Director of "The Muslims are Coming!"
Negin Farsad is at the forefront of social justice comedy—a field that she insists totally exists (or should). As one of few Iranian-American Muslim female comedian/filmmakers, this TED Fellow uses humor—full-scale ridiculousity—to bridge the racial, religious, social, and immigrant gap. The Wall Street Journal calls her work "smart, funny, and fascinating." More information about Negin
