Hearst Lecture Series: Sarah Jaffe

Sarah Jaffe will present "Necessary Trouble: Americans in Revolt." 

Necessary Trouble is the definitive book on the movements that are poised to permanently remake American politics. We are witnessing a moment of unprecedented political turmoil and social activism. Over the last few years we’ve seen the growth of the Tea Party, a twenty-first-century black freedom struggle with BlackLivesMatter, Occupy Wall Street and the grassroots networks supporting presidential candidates in defiance of the traditional party elites.

Exhibit: Doctors and Nurses as Rescuers in Humanitarian Crises

"Doctors and Nurses as Rescuers in Humanitarian Crises," a traveling exhibit produced by the UNI Center for Holocaust and Genocide Education, profiles doctors, nurses and small teams who used their medical training and skills to rescue large numbers of people threatened by humanitarian crisis, usually in the context of armed conflict. The exhibit spans the late 19th century up to the present, in countries on four different continents. An opening reception will be Thursday, Sept. 14 with doors opening at 6:30 p.m. and a short presentation Stephen J. Gaies at 7 p.m. Light refreshments will be served.This event is free and open to the public.
