Having Professor Davis on our campus is monumental! Unfortunately, I am off-campus faculty. Is there a chance that the lecture could be live-streamed? University is live-streaming Professor Davis' lecture tonight, so I wondered if KSU could do the same.

I would like to attend, but do not want to take space which should be allocated to current KSU students to need so desperately to hear this message, and to organize to act on it. Will the lecture be live-streamed, or broadcast to an overflow room in case more people want to attend than the fire marshall quota for the Union Ballroom? Maybe just open all of the folding room dividers and broadcast.

Abolish racism, sexism, classism, inequality, injustice, and the overgrown and monstrous prison industrial complex, now!!! You are my hero, Angela! Wish I was able to attend this amazing event. Power to the people! Never give up! <3<3<3
