"For the Love of Justice" with Danielle Ponder and The Tomorrow People
Brown Commons welcomes public defender, activist, and rising R&B star, Danielle Ponder and her band, The Tomorrow People, to campus to present the first "Seekers, Believers, and Doubters" event on social justice.
"For the Love of Justice" is a multi-media presentation exploring themes of geneder, racial, and economic inequality, criminal justice, and personal liberation. Blending powerful visuals with song, Ponder and her band craft a powerful story and call to action concering some of the most pressing moral challenges of our time.
Coleman Barr Brown, beloved professor of philosophy and religion and university chaplain, for whom Brown Commons is named was fond of saying that in each of us we find a "seeker, believer, and doubter." With the creation of this signature series, Brown Commons honors Coleman's legacy as a champion of human rights and the "ethical center" of Colgate's Universe. Please join us for this inaugural event.
This event is generously co-sponsored by Chartwell's.
