CLP: Art-activist Aaron Maybin

November 12, 2018 @ 8:00 pm

Please join the Center for Inclusive Communities, Athletics Department, Art Department and the Department of Education for a CLP event featuring Aaron Maybin, on Monday, Nov. 12 at 8pm, in the Trone Student Center-Watkins Room. Aaron is an Art-Activist and former professional football player, selected as the 11th overall pick in the 2009 NFL Draft by the Buffalo Bills. He went on to play in the NFL for the New York Jets and the Cincinnati Bengals, before making the decision to walk away from football to pursue a career as a professional artist, educator and community organizer. Aaron’s art, photography, and writing deal with many socially relevant themes and issues, drawn from his own personal experiences as an athlete and growing up as a young black man in America. Aaron uses his platform and gifts to advocate for racial and economic equality, arts education, and programing in underprivileged communities across the country. For more information or questions regarding this event, please contact Deborah Allen, Associate Director of Diversity Engagement (deborah.allen@furman.edu).
