UNI will host the POWER OF WORDS social justice and human rights festival inside Rod Library honoring the birth and contribution of the premiere American human rights advocate of the nineteenth-century, Mr. Frederick Douglass (1818 - 1895).  We invite the UNI community to consider connections between contemporary human rights struggles and Frederick Douglass's work on behalf of nineteenth-century African Americans', women's and immigrants' rights.

The festival of events includes:

  • Dynamic UNI Museum exhibitions
  • UNI student and faculty-led presentations, forums, and orations
  • Performance Slam including current topics such as #MeToo Movement, First Generation and Higher Ed., Immigration and DACA, Voter ID Suppression, and the Black Panther movement
  • Human Rights Wikipedia Edit-a-thon
  • Social Justice Art Exhibition

All events will be held inside Rod Library, except for the Performance Slams, which will be held in the Center of Multicultural Education, Maucker Union. This festival is sponsored by the College of Humanities, Arts and Sciences, Rod Library, UNI Museum and College of Social and Behavioral Sciences.
