Newsletter: Week of March 27, 2017

From the Program Director

Sarah Chandonnet

This Sunday, we're really excited about hosting The Daily Show's Jordan Klepper here at the Hub for his intimate conversation "How to Be an Atheist (Without Being a Jerk)."

Since we knew this event was going to be hugely popular, we decided to ticket it so we can make the most of every seat. The tickets sold out right away, but please feel free to join the wait list here. Our events have been sold out or standing room only, especially this past semester: keep an eye out for more info from us about how we plan to keep growing and creating more space for the community!

Attendees: please be advised that we will be professionally recording this event. We also ask that you arrive 15 minutes before the event is scheduled to start (1:15pm) or you may forfeit your ticket.  1:30-3:00pm, 30 JFK Street (note: kids activities will be available for ticket-holders, see right.) 
Upcoming Programs

April 9: Rhon Manigault-Bryant: Radical Love 
In times of discord, instability, uncertainty, and angst, to what might we turn for solace and clarity? Radical, liberating love, author and Associate Professor of Africana Studies Rhon Manigault-Bryant contends. In this talk, she will unearth a terrifyingly beautiful lineage of black resilience to reveal how the pursuit of love is synonymous with the revolutionary act of freedom. 1:30-3:00pm, 30 JFK Street.

April 16: Mary Johnson: Spring Celebration
Come thaw out together with a joyful celebration of spring, led by Humanist Celebrant and former nun Mary Johnson. Now in its fourth year, at this event we'll explore the themes of community and sharing of gifts in an interactive event featuring music, dance, and poetry from diverse American traditions.
1:30-3:00pm, 30 JFK Street. Read more here.  
Featured Community Voice

Savannah Fritz is a Humanist Hub community member and Harvard senior concentrating in Sociology. She is from a small, rural town where neither atheism nor attending Ivy League universities were looked upon quite favorably. She argues that students from these and some other non-traditional Ivy League backgrounds could benefit from a summer enrichment program aimed at easing the transition to college. In a Harvard Crimson Op-Ed last week, Savannah made a passionate and compelling case for such a program, calling on future students to continue pushing the Harvard College administration until they adequately support underrepresented students.  At the Hub, we are honored to support students like Savannah, and we are extremely proud to share her vision for a more inclusive Harvard College.
