Lou Douglas Lecture Oct. 17

Submitted by Erin Ford

This year's Lou Douglas Lecture features Fanny and Danny Fang and provides a glimpse into the nuances of a Chinese immigrant's journey in America, how and why Danny kept his art dream, and how that pursuit affected future generations. The Fangs hope that by sharing this story, they inspire those in similar circumstances to pursue their dreams.

Danny Fang's artwork will be displayed in Kemper Art Gallery from Oct. 16-Nov. 3.

Lou Douglas Lectures seek to extend understanding of public policies with a focus on social justice issues. They contribute to the general education of K-State students and others on campus and in the community by presenting speakers who propose public policy that deals progressively and democratically with the roots of social, political and economic issues. Known for their impact on regional, national and world affairs, speakers are selected for their commitment to justice and equality for all people.
