Brandeis Freedom Trail

Either I’ve been living in a hole unaware of everything going on around campus for the past three years, or some creative people have recently come up with a new way to let everyone know about Brandeis’ activist history. (Probably both.)

Freedom Trail Tours
Saturday, January 17th
1:30-3:00p, departing from Shapiro Campus Center
The Freedom Trail tour highlights sites on campus where prominent activist events have occurred.

Apparently this event is going to be part of the Martin Luther King Jr. Weekend of Service this coming weekend. Along with the other events, Freedom Trail Tours is being funded by Brandeis Pluralism Alliance. I don’t know who came up with this idea but I think it’s great because it will help to make us more knowledgable about Brandeis’ history and legacy. We shouldn’t hesitate to embrace the actions of the activists who have come before us and set the stage for our current and future struggles.
