Bryan Stevenson, the attorney, activist and author who led the team that created the national memorial to victims of lynching, speaks at UNC Asheville’s Kimmel Arena at 7 p.m. Doors open at 6 p.m. Free, with no tickets required. Stevenson is the founder and executive director of the Equal Justice Initiative (EJI). Under his leadership, EJI has won major legal challenges eliminating excessive and unfair sentencing, exonerating innocent death row prisoners, confronting abuse of the incarcerated and the mentally ill and aiding children prosecuted as adults. Stevenson recently won a historic ruling in the U.S. Supreme Court banning mandatory life-without-parole sentences for all children 17 or younger. He also is the author of award-winning New York Times best-selling book Just Mercy: A Story of Justice and Redemption. A professor of clinical law at the New York University School of Law, Stevenson has been awarded the American Bar Association’s highest honor, the ABA Medal, and the National Medal of Liberty from the American Civil Liberties Union – he was nominated for the latter by U.S. Supreme Court Justice John Stevens. Stevenson has been dubbed “America’s Nelson Mandela” by none other than Archbishop Desmond Tutu of South Africa. Stevenson also has become a national leader in advocacy and public education about mass incarceration and its roots. In April 2018, EJI opened a new museum, The Legacy Museum: From Enslavement to Mass Incarceration, built on the site of a former slave warehouse in downtown Montgomery. This is a companion to a national memorial to victims of lynching, The National Memorial for Peace and Justice, which opened at the same time, gaining national news coverage, including a feature by Oprah Winfrey on CBS’ 60 Minutes. As Stevenson told Winfrey, “We want to call this community to repentance, to acknowledgement, to shame. We want to tell the truth, because we believe in truth and reconciliation but we know that truth and reconciliation are sequential. We can’t get to where we’re trying to go if we don’t tell the truth first.” Stevenson’s team, which has chronicled more than 4,300 lynchings, continues to find more. Many area residents will be reading Just Mercy this spring in anticipation of Stevenson’s visit to Asheville. UNC Asheville’s faculty, together with teachers at Asheville High School, is planning activities for students at both institutions, and some community events focused around the issues raised by Stevenson’s work. Stevenson, who has been awarded the prestigious MacArthur Foundation “Genius” Prize and 34 honorary degrees, is a graduate of the Harvard Law School. His lecture at UNC Asheville is a special event as part of the installation celebration for UNC Asheville’s Chancellor Nancy J. Cable. “Bryan Stevenson is a visionary leader in the field of social justice. The passionate work of his Equal Justice Initiative to challenge racial discrimination in the criminal justice system and confront our nation’s history of racial inequality and injustice has reached millions,” said Nancy J. Cable, Chancellor, UNC Asheville. “It is an honor and privilege to welcome Mr. Stevenson to our campus. We are grateful to our generous sponsors, Dave and Lin Brown and the Van Winkle Law Firm, for providing us with the opportunity to discuss these vital and relevant issues with the university and Asheville communities.” Seating at this free, unticketed event is first-come, first served. Kimmel Arena’s “Clear Bag Policy” will be in effect; please do not bring backpacks. Parking is limited at UNC Asheville; please consider using public transportation.

The “Our Turn to Play Scholarship Luncheon” presented by Wells Fargo will be held on Wednesday, May 1, 2019, from 11:45 a.m.-1:30 p.m. at Kimmel Arena in the Wilma M. Sherrill Center on campus. Sports broadcasting legend Lesley Visser will be the featured speaker. This event is free and open to everyone, but you must pre-register to attend. To register or learn more, please visit http://ottp19.givesmart.com/. The keynote speaker for this year’s event is also none other than broadcasting legend Lesley Visser, who was the first person to be recognized by the Pro Football Hall of Fame as the 2006 recipient of the Pete Rozelle Radio-Television Award, which recognizes long-time exceptional contributions to radio and television in professional football. Visser, who was voted the No.1 Female Sportscaster of all-time in a poll taken by the American Sportscasters Association, currently works for CBS Sports. She was elected to the National Sportscasters and Sportswriters Association Hall of Fame in 2015. Visser is also the only sportscaster in history (male or female) who has worked on Final Four, NBA Finals, World Series, Triple Crown, Monday Night Football, the Olympics, the Super Bowl, the World Figure Skating Championships and U.S. Open (tennis) network broadcasts. UNC Asheville Director of Athletics Janet R. Cone is thrilled that Visser is going to be a part of this year’s “Our Turn to Play Scholarship Luncheon” presented by Wells Fargo. “Our Athletics Departmental strategic plan ‘Believe. Achieve. Thrive.’ is our road map that outlines key areas of focus and growth in developing lifetime leaders from the most valuable resource that we have in our student-athletes,” Cone said. “Lesley Visser, a Hall of Famer, has definitely followed this same type of road map and proven that you can thrive in all areas. I cannot think of a better keynote speaker to relay to our female student-athletes and community friends what it takes to win in the classroom, in competition and in the community.” The “Our Turn to Play Scholarship Luncheon” presented by Wells Fargo is an annual event that helps recognize women that are true champions and leaders and helps raise scholarship funds for UNC Asheville women student-athletes. The event recognizes the many successes of women in athletics and encourages all to support gender equity. Cone knows just how important the “Our Turn to Play Scholarship Luncheon” presented by Wells Fargo is every year. “The annual ‘Our Turn to Play Scholarship Luncheon’ supporting women’s athletic scholarships is truly one of our most important events of the year,” Cone said. “This fundraising event is key to the success of our women’s athletics programs, and just like every year we have already been overwhelmed by the amount of individuals who want to help support this endeavor. There is space still available, and we hope more can join us for what promises to be a special event.” For more information on the “Our Turn to Play Scholarship Luncheon” presented by Wells Fargo, please contact Betsy Blose, Special Assistant to the Director of Athletics, at 828.251.6907 or [email protected] You can learn more about Lesley Visser by visiting her official website at www.lesleyvisser.com.

NOTE: Instructor will be using macOS 10.13 High Sierra, as soon as it is released by Apple.
