Students from “Genocide: the Call of Memory” class will hold a Teach-In on Tuesday, May 13, from noon to 1 p.m. on the patio at Bartels Hall. The theme is “Honor the Boys of North Nigeria: Bring Home the Girls!” The students will be providing updates on the situation in Nigeria created by the terrorist group Boko Haram. They will give websites for students to visit to call for action against this continuing crisis, and they will be marching with artwork that depicts the conflict and provides background information.

According to Lauren Kempton, an adjunct professor of global studies, the students are inspired by the words of Albert Einstein....."the world will not be destroyed by those who do evil, but by those who watch them without doing anything."
