Africa: Human Encounters at the Blount County Public Library on Monday, March 5

During her studies in International Legal Studies, Jessica Mason worked a five-month internship, based in South Africa and also covered stories in Niger and Swaziland. She developed a passion for giving voice to those most often silenced by society, culture or government. During her travels, Mason’s experiences reinforced a conviction that people, for all their differences, are all people, sharing common dreams, hopes and concerns. This conviction has meshed with a passion for justice for oppressed and outcast peoples.

 

She says, “Walking the streets of Pretoria with trafficking victims, documenting a settlement empty of young adults due to AIDS/HIV, and facing the poverty of Third World regions gave faces to classroom lessons on human rights law and abuse.”

 

Mason will give a presentation, “African: Human Encounters” at the Blount County Public Library on Monday, March 5, at 7 p.m.

 

 

Free and open to the public, the program is at the Blount County Public Library, located at 508 N. Cusick Street, Maryville.
