Espinosa will offer a lecture, “Debtor’s Prison in Washington State: Advocacy Through Visual Storytelling,” at the Port Angeles and Forks campuses.

Espinosa will present the lecture at 12:35 p.m. Thursday at the Little Theater on the Port Angeles campus as part of the Studium Generale series.

Attendees are encouraged to bring and donate non-perishable food items to the Port Angeles Food Bank in recognition of Dr. King’s Operation Breadbasket.

Dream Week will conclude Friday in Port Angeles.

Immediately after the readings will be the 6:30 p.m. screening of “13th,” a film by Ava DuVernay, in the Little Theater.

The documentary presented by the Magic of Cinema offers a look at how the modern-day prison labor system links to slavery, organizers said.
