From the makers of Kony2012, Invisible Children will be on the Black Hills State University campus at 7 p.m. Monday, Sept. 10 in the Meier Recital Hall.

 

Invisible Children is a non-profit that exists to bring an end to the atrocities of the Lord's Resistance Army, led by a man named Joseph Kony. According to Invisible Children, Kony’s group has been perpetuating terror and violence in the region for over 26 years, and one of their main tactics is abducting children and forcing them into the rebel ranks.

 

This fall will mark their 15th international tour. They have presented more than 13,000 times in formal academic assemblies across the U.S. and internationally. In a matter of days, the documentary Kony2012 attracted millions of viewers and national media attention.

 

This presentation is open to the public at no cost and is sponsored by the Mass Communication Department and the Jacket Journal, the student paper at BHSU. For more information, contact Devin Lynn, Editor-in-Chief of the Jacket Journal, at 605-642-6389 or BHSU.Buzz@gmail.com.
