          Dr. Stephen Boyd, J. Allen Easley Professor of Religion at Wake Forest University, will address the Moral Monday Movement that began during the 2013 Session of the North Carolina Legislature. Attention will be given to select aspects of the legislative agenda, their effects on various members of the state’s population, media coverage, and the nature, growth, and aims of the demonstrations, including the 950 who engaged in non-violent civil disobedience and were arrested. He will touch on the larger historical context of race and class in the US and North Carolina and then suggest that this new movement has the potential to answer Dr. King’s call for a broadening of the Civil Rights Movement to a multi-racial human rights movement.

            As part of our sustainable initiatives, WFU is using more stormwater best management practices, installing more native plants and investing resources in invasive plant removal. However, much of this goes unnoticed. It’s important as a institution of higher education that we share this and the reason behind these trends and encourage others through education to apply this at home and elsewhere—therefore sowing the seeds of change in how we garden outside the boundaries of campus. David Davis, Associate Director of Landscaping Services at WFU, will be the speaker for this event.
