Please join us for a conversation about social justice, advocacy, and activism with Jerry Mitchell and Reena Evers-Everette.
Jerry Mitchell is an investigative journalist, Pulitzer Prize finalist, and founder of the Mississippi Center for Investigative Reporting. He spent three decades investigating civil rights cases that had gone cold and is the winner of the 2022 Salem Award for Human Rights and Social Justice.
Reena Evers-Everette is the daughter of civil rights activists Medgar Evers and Myrlie Evers-Williams. She is a W. K. Kellogg Foundation Community Leadership Fellow and Executive Director for the Medgar and Myrlie Evers Institute.
Together, Mitchell and Evers-Everette bring decades of experience advocating for social justice to the Salem State campus. They will share what motivates them in their social justice and racial equity work and will take questions from the audience. A reception with light refreshments will follow.
This event is co-sponsored by the Sociology Department and the First Year Experience.
