President's Distinguished Speakers Series: David A. Wilson

February 17, 2015

Location: FCAS 157
  • Open to the Public

Drawing on history, current events and his own personal experience, journalist and documentary filmmaker David A. Wilson has emerged as a leading voice in encouraging an open dialogue and national conversation on race relations in America.

In Wilson’s second visit to Roger Williams University, his groundbreaking film – “Meeting David Wilson” – will be screened in its entirety, and a Q&A session with the acclaimed filmmaker will follow.

The event is part of a yearlong series at RWU titled 150 Years Later: The 13th Amendment & Race in America, which calls upon us to both celebrate the monumental legislation to abolish slavery, but also to reflect critically on the current state of race relations in the U.S.

This event is free and open to the public; no tickets are required. For more information, call 401-254-3166.

RWU students will receive a 1/3 merit lottery point for attending this event.
