Speakers include Reverend Rhondalyn Randolph of Pleasant Point Missionary Baptist Church and KWC senior Armand Childs. Childs will share his experience of injustice and encourage others to change for the betterment of the world and others.

KWC Equity and Inclusion Coordinator Andrea Denise Bolden shared, “I’m grateful to witness the partnership between the Kentucky Wesleyan College Black Students’ Union and the Kentucky Wesleyan College Black Students’ Union. University of Brescia to host this unity march. Collaboration is an exceptional way to connect, raise awareness and work together for change. I look forward to sharing and keeping a space with our Panther students.
