Black Lives Matter Leader Shaun King to speak Nov. 15

Senior Justice Writer Shaun King is an increasingly prominent voice within the Black Lives Matter movement. He will visit Penn State Berks to discuss civil rights issues, social justice and equality at 7 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 15, in the Perkins Student Center Auditorium.

This event is free and open to the public, but tickets are required. Tickets are currently available in the Campus Life Office, located in the Perkins Student Center. Tickets will also be available at the door. 

By using social media to highlight, amplify, and discuss news of racial discrimination and civil rights issues, King has become a catalyst for crucial conversations about social justice and equality. He has written extensively about the Black Lives Matter movement, covering discrimination, police brutality, the prison industrial complex, and social justice in the wake of violence in New York; Baltimore; Cleveland; Ferguson, Missouri; Charleston, South Carolina; and other major cities. He is senior justice writer at the New York Daily News and justice writer for Daily Kos, and a regular political commentator for The Young Turks, and the Tom Joyner Morning Show.
