Holocaust survivor, MLK colleague to speak in Park

Ingrid Frank--a Jewish refugee from Nazi Germany and a longtime human rights activist who went to jail for the Civil Rights movement in 1968—will help celebrate Martin Luther King Jr. Week at Ithaca College by giving a keynote address, “How to Change the World,” on Wednesday, Jan. 24. Beginning at 8 p.m. in Park Hall Auditorium, Frank’s talk is free and open to the public.

She is the co-founder of Periscope Associates, an organization that develops and promotes marketing campaigns, books, films, exhibits, and special events designed to promote racial healing.

The event will also feature a panel discussion that gives practical advice on how to serve as an advocate at the legislative level to truly enact social change. The panel features local activists as well as Frank.
