In the Student Union Ballroom
In celebration of Black History Month the University Programming Council presents Emmanuel Jal, southern Sudanese Hip Hop artist, former child soldier. The artist, author, and orator will be speaking about his life as a child soldier for the Sudanese People’s Liberation Army and his escape to England. Emmanuel Jal is the central figure for the internationally acclaimed War Child documentary which a portion will be shown during the performance. A book signing of Jal’s recently released book, Warchild will accompany the event. Join us for an educational and informative event that sheds light on international issues and events not typically covered in everyday news.
