After a year full of standing-room-only events featuring the likes of Cornel West, Michelle Alexander, and Francis Collins, the University of Virginia is preparing to wind up its popular Excellence Through Diversity Distinguished Learning Series with a pair of powerful speakers.
Angela Davis, an activist, scholar, and writer who advocates for the oppressed, will speak at 6 p.m. on March 27, 2018, at the Paramount Theater on the Downtown Mall. The event is free and open to the public, however tickets will be required.
To ensure that UVA students are able to attend this rare and special event, UVA community tickets are now available on a first-come, first-served basis. Two tickets maximum can be reserved per person, and are available online. To reserve the UVA seats, please use code "UVACommunity" at the top right hand side of the page before placing your order. Please do not share this code, as ticket supplies are limited.
If you are unable to get a ticket, we will be opening up the standby line at 5:45 p.m. on the 27th, so make sure to show up early to guarantee yourself a spot!
The last event in this year's series features Michael Sam, former NFL player and LGBTQ activist. Sam will appear on April 12, 2018, at 6 p.m. in the McLeod Hall auditorium. At this time, tickets are not required. Seating will be first-come, first-served.
Please do not hesitate to get in touch with Thomas Pilnik (firstname.lastname@example.org) with any questions about the event or series. We are exceptionally excited to see you there!
