Kean University's Human Rights Center will host its event that has taken place since the spring semester of 2014, known as the College Hour with Kean's Anne Evans Estabrook-Human Rights Senior Fellow: John Prendergrast.
The event will happen at the Little Theatre in the Miron Student Center (MSC) from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. on Thursday, November 3, 2016.
Prendergrast will provide a number of vignettes in which students and celebrities have made a difference on issues of importance to them. Students are encouraged in this two-hour event on Thursday afternoon to discuss success stories in student activism with Prendergrast.
This will be Prendergrast's sixth time doing this event. He has come every spring and fall semester since Tuesday, March 4, 2014, after Kean University President Dawood Farahi's announcement that Prendergrast would join the university as the Anne Evans Estabrook-Senior Fellow.
An acclaimed best-selling author and Human Rights advocate, Prendergrast has been known to work for peace in Africa for nearly 30 years. He became the co-founder of the Enough Project, an initiative to end genocide and crimes against humanity. Prendergrast has also worked for the Clinton White House, UNICEF, and the U.S Institute of Peace.
