University of Wyoming College of Law student Debra Bulluck, of Casper, will discuss landmark cases as part of Black History Month at UW.
Bulluck’s “#BecauseOfThemWeCan” talk will focus on “key landmark cases and the people behind them that helped advance our community as it is today.” Her talk is Wednesday, Feb. 17, at noon in Room 170 of the UW College of Law Building.
The Multicultural Law Student Association sponsors Bulluck’s presentation, which is free and open to the public. Lunch will be provided.
The #BecauseOfThemWeCan campaign is a nationwide project created by Eunique Jones Gibson, a content producer, photographer, author and activist. She says the campaign is “to educate and connect a new generation to heroes who have paved the way.”
Jones Gibson launched the campaign in 2013, using photos of children replicating African-American icons; the campaign went viral. She was honored in 2014 as a White House Champion of Change for her work with the #BecauseOfThemWeCan campaign.
