Nobel Laureate Speaking at University of Memphis this Friday

There's an awesome lecture happening in Memphis this weekend related to our class.

At 4:00PM this Friday, February 11th, Rigoberta Menchú will be speaking at the University of Memphis in the UC Ballroom. As a member of the Quiché-Maya group in Guatemala, Menchú is an advocate of indigenous rights. She drew global attention to the effects of the Guatemala Civil War on the country's indigenous population and received the Nobel Peace Prize in 1992.

I'm planning to go, so let me know if you'd like a ride!
