Human Rights Watch

To encourage the Moravian community to think about the issues of human rights across the globe, Donald St. John, professor of religion, and other faculty members have organized three panel discussions for mid-March.

The panels bracket a concert called “Incite Hope”—the motto of Amnesty International— by Debra Torok, artistlecturer in music (piano).

They focus on populations and geography:

• “Human Rights in Latin America and Africa.” Khristina Haddad, political science; Kym Morrison, history, a native of Jamaica; Fernando Rivera-Díaz, visiting assistant professor of Spanish, scholar of indigenous Peruvian languages and literature; and Kofi Opoku, professor of religious studies at Lafayette College. 7:00 p.m. Tuesday, March 22.
