An Opportunity to Reverse the Flow of Time

As part of the college's Martin Luther King Jr. celebration, this coming Wednesday, 21 Jan., noted poet, writer, hip-hop artist, and actor Saul Williams will be on campus for a reading and presentation. The presentation runs from 11:30 - 1:00 in Sub Lounges A, B, and C. So, what's the best reason to attend this presentation? Naturally, because it should be interesting and engaging. To a fair extent, in fact, this is the sort of thing the college experience ought to be about--providing a chance for students to hear a variety of diverse and significant voices they likely wouldn't otherwise have a chance to hear--and it's smart to take advantage of such opportunities. Beyond that excellent reason, though, students from our class who attend Williams' presentation and then compose a response paragraph regarding the experience will have one absence stricken from their official records. Understand, your response need only be a single paragraph, but it should be a rich one, including specific details about Williams and his presentation and offering explanations for the responses you report. The paragraph would need to be turned in no later than the following Monday, 26 Jan. Of course, you can still go see Williams even if you choose not to write a paragraph about the experience, but in any case, I hope to see you there.
