Building Community in the Age of Information: Fighting Health Inequality in the Modern World”   The 31st Annual Minority Health Conference from the UNC Gillings School of Global Public Health Minority Student Caucus.
Photo of standing ovation for Robert Fullilove's Lecture (Click photo or title)       12th Annual William T. Small, Jr. Keynote Lecture by Robert E. Fullilove, EdD ("I was a community organizer for SNCC - which is about to celebrate its 50th anniversary - in Mississippi in 1964 and in '65 ... much of what I have done as a public health guy comes straight from that experience."). Dr. Fullilove's presentation is titled "Community Organizing and Community Building: Public Health Watchwords for the 21st Century" [more]

"This webcast was by far the most excellent of the past three viewings that we have held in our center. Dr Fullilove's inspiring presentation was evidence of his extensive community advocacy. His application of interdisciplinary methods toward solving public health problems resonated with the work that we do at Duke Center for Community Research (DCCR). Unlike other years we did not experience any technical difficulties with the webcast and are most grateful for the UNC conference for continuing these important dialogues."

“I would like to have attended this event in person; however, budget constraints limit and restrict our travel. Thanks so much for providing this webcast. Dr. Krieger has written extensively on social inequities in health. Her work is illuminating and thought-provoking. There is profound clarity in her research to help guide efforts to understand and address social determinants of health. My work involves addressing health inequities and improving the health of Oklahoma’s diverse minority populations. The presentation in this webcast will inform my efforts.”

Featured Website: Southern Poverty Law Center
Founded in 1971 as a small civil rights law firm, the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) is internationally known for its tolerance education programs, legal victories against white supremacists and tracking of hate groups. The Center and its co-founder, Morris Dees, have been the target of death threats, bomb plots, and a successful arson attack. Recently an FBI informant described a plot to assassinate Morris Dees by a man whose organization (Imperial Klans of America) is currently being sued by SPLC on behalf of a teenage boy who was viciously beaten by Klan members.

A Discovery Channel program (Monday, Oct. 13 at 10 p.m. ET/PT) hosted by Ted Koppel examines an historic Southern Poverty Law Center lawsuit that destroyed one of the nation's most violent Klan groups following the 1981 lynching of Michael Donald in Mobile, Ala. The program features interviews with SPLC co-founder Morris Dees and Alabama Congressman Artur Davis, who was an SPLC intern during the case. Dees is also featured on a National Geographic special on KKK: Inside American Terror, Wednesday, Oct. 15 at 8 p.m. (ET/PT). (Posted 10/13/2008)
