Each year, the ROAR Scholars Program holds an, “Advocacy in Action Forum,” event that brings students, faculty, staff together to discuss advocacy issues in our modern society.
Our final event is our advocacy forum “A Red, White, and Blue Affair”, where we will have a speaker who will help vocalize the importance of advocacy and being active as a citizen.
This year our speaker will be Jeff Johnson, a Washington, DC – based, award-winning investigative journalist, social activist, and political commentator. He will be speaking on campus in the Stern Center Ballroom, at the College of Charleston, on October 26th from 7 – 8pm. A pre-event reception will be held from 6-7 pm in the Stern Center. Both events are free and open to the College of Charleston community.
This year’s topic of the talk will be:
“Unclaimed Legacy: Who Will Lead the Next Social Movement?”
This program is sponsored by ROAR Scholars Program, Office of Research and Grants Accounting, C.A.B., Office of Institutional Diversity, Multicultural Student Programs and Services, and the Political Science, African- American Studies, and Communications Departments.
