Umoja presents: Ericka Huggins
In honor of Black History Month, the College of Marin Umoja Community presents a free lecture by educator, human rights activist, and poet Ericka Huggins.
The lecture will take place on Thursday, February 8, from 5:00-7:00 pm in the Performing Arts Building, James Dunn Theatre, with a reception following.
Ericka Huggins is an educator, former Black Panther Party member, political prisoner, human rights activist, and poet. For 37 years, Ms. Huggins has lectured in the United States and internationally on human rights, restorative justice, and the role of spiritual practice in sustaining activism and promoting social change.
