The Gift of Our Wounds

November 25, 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

The Chancellor’s Care, Respect and Expressions lecture series presents “The Gift of Our Wounds: A Sikh and a Former White Supremacist Find Forgiveness After Hate.”

In the wake of his father’s murder by a white supremacist at a Sikh temple in Oak Creek, Wisconsin, Pardeep Singh Kaleka has become a powerful voice against hate crime and violence. Kaleka and former white supremacist Arno Michaelis have co-authored a book entitled The Gift of Our Wounds. Kaleka has also founded Serve 2 Unite, an organization that brings together young people from different religious and cultural backgrounds. This is a free event with a book signing to follow.

Boswell Books will be the book seller onsite for this event.

Sign language interpreters will be provided.
