"Combating Hate With Love" featuring Ken Nwadike, Jr.
Peace activist and motivational speaker Ken Nwadike, Jr., of the Free Hugs Project, who was at the site of the recent deadly violence in Charlottesville, VA, will be speaking at Limestone College's Fullerton Auditorium on Wednesday, Sept. 6, at 8 p.m.
Throughout the year, Nwadike travels the country seeking to diffuse violence at protests and encouraging civil dialogue. Just a few months after visiting Limestone College in September of 2016, he spent time in Charlotte working to mediate tensions between protesters and police.
He is the founder and president of Restore Civility, a national campaign to develop communities that navigate social justice issues with respect, empathy, and positive dialogue.
Last year, Nwadike was one of Limestone's most engaging and well-received speakers.
This time around, he will focus his time at Limestone talking about “Combating Hate with Love.” He will also be on campus during the day to encourage students to attend the program.
