The event “Black Lives Matter” featuring Alicia Garza on February 26th was cancelled at the request of the agency representing the speaker due to scheduling conflicts. The University of Virginia was notified of the cancellation Tuesday morning.

The lecture was originally scheduled in January as part of the 2016 Community MLK Celebration and was postponed due to inclement weather. At this time there are no plans to reschedule the event again.
