Leonard Pitts Jr. speaking in Memorial Hall

Leonard Pitts Jr., who spoke to a packed Memorial Hall on Sept. 12, 2017, comes back to Bethel virtually on April 25.

That evening, Mem Hall was more full than it had been in over half a century, when Martin Luther King Jr. spoke on the same stage.

Pitts’ lecture, titled “America in the Age of Trump,” was sponsored by the Kansas Institute for Peace and Conflict Resolution (KIPCOR), as part of its Peace Lecture series.

Now KIPCOR is bringing Pitts for a return engagement, albeit under pandemic circumstances.
