Letter: ​UNC will feature an incredible speaker


One of the great things about being a student here at UNC is the caliber of guest speakers our university attracts.

On Jan. 23, we have the opportunity to hear from a prominent human rights activist, Chen Guangcheng, who will be speaking on his experiences as a “barefoot lawyer” in China.

He was an ardent supporter of women’s rights and the rights of the poor, and was eventually jailed for his activism. His escape from imprisonment is incredible in its own right, but made even more so by the fact that Mr. Guangcheng is blind.

He has a truly incredible story to tell, and I hope as many as can will show up at Manning 209 for his talk Monday night at 6 p.m.
