Freire Public Readout!

BIG thank you to everyone who showed up to our public readout of Paulo Freire’s Pedagogy of the Oppressed today in the Student Center lobby! We know it took a lot of guts to stand up in public and read, but you all did an amazing job of spreading Freire’s words and message out there. A special thanks to PEP (Pin@y Educational Partnerships) folks who came out specially for the reading and who blew us all away with their powerful words. Here are some pictures and resources from the event today. And don’t forget to come check out our bulletin board display “Freedom to Read Ethnic Studies” outside Jack Adams Hall on the Terrace Level of the Student Center. Stay tuned to our blog and Facebook for videos from the readout!
