which lives matter v2.jpg


“WHICH LIVES MATTER” is an intense, inclusive, educational program, intended to build bridges, not walls.  Speaker, poet, and activist Monti Washington helps students explore the history, conditioning, stereotypes, and racism that separates and divides our community and nation.   He addresses the issues from a social media and social justice perspective.    
With spoken word poetry, personal stories, and social media examples, students will learn how they can make a difference on their campus and in their community.  By the conclusion of this lecture, students will see that their voices matter, their opinions matter, and most importantly, that “ALL THEIR LIVES MATTER”. 

Monti put on a wonderful program and the students at Illinois College really enjoyed his message. Monti really did well with making everyone feel included even though we had a big crowd for the performance. Monti’s message was one that was greatly needed on our campus and I think the students learned a lot.
