UW Madison Black Cultural Center will host An Evening with Angela Rye on Wednesday, Feb. 20, 6:30-9:30 p.m. at Union South Varsity Hall, 1308 W. Dayton St.
Angela Rye, Esq. is a political commentator, champion for civil rights, and a budding entrepreneur. She offers regular on-air commentary for media outlets including CNN, BET, MSNBC, and NPR. Currently serving on the board of the Congressional Black Caucus Institute and Political Committee, Rye has an unwavering commitment to ensuring positive change in the political process. The depth of her dialogue ranges from political campaigns to more complex legislation and administration policies that have long term implications nationally and internationally. Our theme, Striking B(l)ack: An Unmatched Legacy, parallels the initial fight of the 1969 Black Student Strike with today’s campus climate of exclusion and erasure of Black Students. Rye will be lecturing on the responsibility of next-generation activism.
This event is free and open to the public. For more information, call (608)262-2014 or e-mail [email protected]
