Description

The Institute for the Arts and Humanities announces that Rev. Dr. William J. Barber II will deliver the 2017 Weil Lecture on American Citizenship. Due to high demand, and to create as many opportunities as possible to attend the lecture, only one ticket per registrant will be honored.

Barber is the pastor at Greenleaf Christian Church in Goldsboro. He has served as president of the North Carolina National Association of Advancement for Colored People (NC NAACP) and sits on the national board of the organization. Barber is most recently well known as the architect of the Moral Mondays Movement, a weekly protest at the state legislature building in Raleigh.

The Institute for the Arts and Humanities has hosted UNC’s Weil Lecture on American Citizenship since 2000. Brothers Henry and Solomon Weil established the lecture in 1915 to widen discussion of the concept in the United States.

Presidents Taft and Carter, Eleanor Roosevelt, Senators J. William Fulbright and Nancy Kassebaum and Professor Lester Thurow are among the many distinguished Weil lecturers. Other recent speakers have been members of Congress, diplomats, political commentators and renowned scholars. For more on the history of the Weil Lecture, visit the IAH website.
