GSLC Alumna Featured at Apollo Theatre’s Unsung Champions of Civil Rights from MLK to Today Forum

Social justice activist, author, and Graduate School of Leadership and Change alumna Dr. Janet Dewart Bell is a featured, notable guest at the upcoming forum entitled, Unsung Champions of Civil Rights from MLK to Today, slated to be held at the historic Apollo Theatre in New York City, January 20, 2019.

The Apollo Theatre and WNYC public radio are partnering for the sixth year to present this forum to facilitate meaningful conversations examining Dr. King’s legacy and its impact on modern social-justice movements. This year will include a lively mix of one-on-one interviews and panels placing emphasis on lesser-known names crucial to the Civil Rights Movement of the 1960s and today’s social-issue movements. The “unsung” will include men, women, members of the LGBTQ community and others who didn’t receive deserved recognition.
