Peninsula College Dream Week ends with several events

Peninsula College will wrap up Dream Week, honoring Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s legacy, today.

“Living with Conviction,” a photography exhibit by Deborah Espinosa, will be on display at the Forks campus at 481 S. Forks Ave. through today.

Espinosa is an attorney, multimedia storyteller, activist and founder of Living with Conviction who combines legal and visual storytelling skills to advocate for the rights of the poor and marginalized, organizers said.

She will offer a lecture, “Debtor’s Prison in Washington State: Advocacy Through Visual Storytelling,” at 7 p.m. tonight at the Forks campus as part of the Studium West event series.

In Port Angeles, the Racial Justice Collective members will read from King’s “Letter from a Birmingham Jail” at 5:30 p.m. in the PUB on the campus at 1502 E. Lauridsen Blvd. Snacks will be provided. Immediately after the readings will be the 6:30 p.m. screening of “13th,” a film by Ava DuVernay, in the Little Theater, followed by a panel discussion.

A station will provide opportunity to write letters of support to incarcerated members of cultural groups at Clallam Bay Correction Center, and letters addressing human rights concerns at CBCC to media and elected officials.

Sponsors of the event include the Associated Student Body, House of Learning Peninsula College Longhouse, Magic of Cinema, Peninsula College Forks, Port Angeles Racial Justice Collective, Studium Generale and Studium West.
