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


Butler will suspend ticketing from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Feb. 4 across the campus. Please use Hinkle Fieldhouse Lots (25, 26, 27) off 49th Street, or Rescoe Lot (6), the part closest to Sunset Ave. There is also a temporary gravel lot (between 15 and 16) between the Pharmacy Building and Lilly Hall. Visitors with handicap tags are invited to park in any open accessible spot, or any open spot close to Robertson Hall.
