The Office of the Chaplaincy invites you to join us for our inaugural speaker in the newly created Sylvester Speaker Series, Bree Newsome.  The Sylvester Speaker Series seeks to bring spiritual leaders to campus who are actively working to change our world for the better.

Bree Newsome is best known for her act of civil disobedience when she was arrested for removing the Confederate flag from the South Carolina capital as a response to the church shooting in Charleston. She is a filmmaker, activist and dynamic community leader.
