Anita Hill, University Professor of Social Policy, Law, and Women's Studies at Brandeis University, will be the keynote speaker for the 2017 Community MLK Celebration in January. Hill is a leader in both the civil rights and women’s rights movements and an expert on the complex and often challenging issues of race, gender, and workplace discrimination in America. In 1993, Hill made sexual harassment in the workplace a national issue when she testified that Supreme Court Justice nominee Clarence Thomas had committed sexual harassment against her.
Hill's keynote speech is set for Thursday, January 26, 2017 at 6:30 p.m. at the Paramount Theater. The event will be free and open to the public. Check back later this fall for further details about ticketing.
