The University of Alabama at Birmingham’s Institute for Human Rights will host guest speaker Derick Wilson, Ph.D., Reader Emeritus in Education with Restorative Practices from Ulster University, for a discussion about reconciliation in both local and global contexts Tuesday, Feb. 11, in UAB’s Heritage Hall, Room 500. The event begins at 3:30 p.m.
Wilson has undertaken practical reconciliation work in Northern Ireland since 1965 and is currently a Fulbright Scholar in Residence at St Philip’s College in San Antonio, Texas. He is currently examining how this historically black college and Hispanic-serving institution is developing educational access and opportunity as a central approach in tackling poverty and underachievement.
The lecture is free and open to the public.
