COMM 461 Sponsors Social Justice Day Event

On Thursday, April 11, COMM 461 (Voices of Public Leadership in the Twentieth Century, taught by Assistant Professor Carly Woods), working with the UMD Special Collections Library, explored speeches with social justice themes in the George Meany Labor Archive. Special thanks to Benjamin Blake, Special Collections Librarian for Labor Studies, and Alan Wierdak, Labor Archive Specialist.
 
The event showcasing these speeches, was held on UMD's Social Justice Day. Students gave short presentations and vocal interpretations of speeches from leaders such as Cesar Chavez, Samuel Gompers, John L. Lewis, A. Phillip Randolph, Bayard Rustin, and Nancy Wohlforth. It was also a great opportunity to learn about the incredible labor materials housed at UMD.
 
The event was free and open to the public.
