WNCU Town Hall Targets Student Activism in the 21st Century

North Carolina Central University's radio station, WNCU 90.7 FM, will hold a town hall, “SEEN and Heard” on Tuesday, Aug. 28, at 7 p.m. in the auditorium of the H. M. Michaux Jr. School of Education.

“The forum is a youth-centered public affairs forum that will stimulate, educate and provoke discussion about the political process and crucial public policy issues,” said Dr. Jarvis Hall, associate professor in the Department of Political Science and director of the Institute for Civic Engagement and Social Change. WNCU will broadcast this event live.

Student Activism in the 21st century is the first installment in a four-part series that will examine the status of youth and student political action. A panel of experts will discuss the unique role that young people have played in political movements and how they are rekindling that role today.

The Student Engagement and Empowerment Network (SEEN) is a statewide network created to build the civic capacity of students at Historically Black Colleges and Universities. NCCU is the flagship institution supporting this effort. Partners from North Carolina’s 11 HBCUs established SEEN to facilitate communication, collaboration, training and the sharing of ideas for voter empowerment and community organizing for policy advocacy. SEEN is a primary vehicle for student and community mobilization for the 2012 election and beyond.
