Even with the weather a tempting 50 degrees this week, there are still a couple of master’s teas that may keep you inside.
Tomorrow at 4 p.m. in Davenport, Stephen Bright will hold a master’s tea on “From Debtors’ Prisons to the Death Penalty—Race, Poverty and Other Injustices in the Criminal Courts.” Bright has won numerous top law honors and awards.
Lillian Kimura, who was the first female president of the National Japanese Americans Citizens League, will speak at 4 p.m. at Pierson this Friday. Kimura was interned in Manzanar, California, during World War II when she was 13 years old. Kimura later worked for the Redress Movement, and the topic of her tea will be “Day of Remembrance.”
