Please join us on Friday, October 4th (5:00pm – 7:00pm; Wollman Hall, B500-Eugene Lang Building-Enter via 66 W. 12th Street) in honoring Polish activist and writer Adam Michnik.
Michnik, one of seven human rights activists honored in 1984 in the commemoration of the founding of the University in Exile, could not attend because he was at the time in a Polish jail for his dissident activities. On October 4th 2019 he will be honored for his continuing work and he will consider our dark times as he reflects on the promise of the recent past in his lecture, Thirty Years Ago: A Time of Joy and Hope.
