USD community to honor Kings legacy with Day of Service
Students, faculty and staff from USD will join the Vermillion community on Monday, Jan. 19 for the Day of Service. All volunteers will meet at noon at the ballroom of the Muenster University Center for orientation (register online at http://bit.ly/1dta9Zu to volunteer) followed by an afternoon of community service projects. The Day of Service concludes with a reorientation and reflection at 4 p.m. at the ballroom.
At 7 p.m. on Tuesday, Jan. 20, Farsad will address campus with a lecture on “Comedic Justice” at the MUC ballroom. 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 to bridge the racial, religious, social and immigrant gap. The Wall Street Journal calls her work “smart, funny, and fascinating.” Download a photo of Farsad.
