Ovid Butler (1801-1881) was a lawyer, abolitionist, journalist and founder of Butler University. Revolutionary for his time, he believed strongly in equal rights and education for all. What would he and other abolitionists say about the struggle for racial justice in the era of mass incarceration and increasing militarization of police? What can be done to get beyond the tensions many communities across the U.S. have faced and to ensure that citizens and police are partners, not adversaries? Join us for First Wednesdays as we return to Indianapolis on February 4, noon to 1 p.m. Panel is moderated by IndyStar columnist Erika Smith, and is part of Butler University's Founders Day
