Wright State University will host the annual Social Justice Fair on Saturday, April 1, from 10 a.m. to noon in 145–146 Russ Engineering Center.

The fair will highlight the accomplishments of Wright State students, secondary students and their teachers. Students will informally share their work, such as creative or informational writing, literary response, research, technology, multi-genre or other social-justice-related projects.

Projects from all subject areas are welcome. Presentation of students’ work is encouraged but not required to attend the Social Justice Fair.

If students are unable to attend, their teachers are welcome to share the students’ work on their behalf. Students will receive certificates of participation, and teachers will receive certificates documenting professional development.

The Social Justice Fair will also feature a talk by Lyn Ford, an award-winning storyteller and author of “Affrilachian Tales: Folktales from the African American Appalachian Tradition,” “Hot Wind Boiling Rain: Scary Stories for Strong Hearts” and “Supporting Diversity and Inclusion with Story: Authentic Folktales and Discussion Guides.” A book signing will follow.
