On Monday, January 15, 2018, starting at 12:30 p.m., best-selling author Nic Stone will appear at the Glenns Campus of Rappahannock Community College, to speak on Martin Luther King, Jr. Day.
After working extensively in teen mentoring and living in Israel for a few years, Ms. Stone returned to the United States to write full-time. Dear Martin, her first novel, is loosely based on a series of true events involving the shooting deaths of unarmed African-American teenagers.
Shaken by the various responses to these incidents — and to the pro-justice movement that sprang up as a result — Ms. Stone began the project in an attempt to examine current affairs through the lens of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s teachings.
Ms. Stone’s appearance will be broadcast to the other RCC Campuses through internet video connections.
January 15 marks the first day of the Spring 2018 semester at Rappahannock Community College.
The event is free and open to the public.
