Racial Justice, Revival, and the Refounding of America - Joseph Holland '78

Friday, October 23, 2015 at 3:30pm to 4:30pm

Alice Statler Auditorium
7 East Ave, Ithaca, NY 14850, USA

America faces a crossroads. Will the racial crises of Baltimore, Charleston, Ferguson, and Staten Island rage ad infinitum? Or will the founding principles of justice and equality be revivified in ways that will finally fulfill the dream of which Martin Luther King Jr. so eloquently spoke? American history demonstrates an enduring dynamic between Christian witness and racial justice. What will the future hold?

The event is free and open to the public. If you can't attend in person, tune in for a live broadcast of the talk. Cornell President Emeritus Frank H.T. Rhodes will introduce Joseph H. Holland.

Joseph H. Holland ("Holland") is a graduate of Cornell University, where he earned a B.A. and M.A. and was an All-American football player. He has served on the University's Board of Trustees for twelve years before being appointed Trustee Emeritus. He holds his J.D. degree from Harvard Law School and is a real estate developer, ordained minister, Harlem-based attorney and civic leader with twenty-five years of experience working in prominent organizations in law, business and government.

The Alan T. and Linda M. Beimfohr Lecture is sponsored by Chesterton House, a Center for Christian Studies affiliated with Cornell United Religious Work (CURW), and offered in conjuction with this year's Trustee-Council Annual Meeting (TCAM) weekend.
