Correction: Human Rights Week 2000

Rap artist Chuck D was incorrectly named a guest speaker for a Jan. 20 Human Rights Week event. Joe Clark, whose life the 1986 movie "Lean on Me," was based, will address a public audience at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 20 at the IMU Main Lounge. Clark is a promoter of pride in one's self and in school and is author of "Laying Down the Law."

Human Rights Week 2000 is coordinated by the UI Office of Student Life, and by numerous UI departments, which sponsor events to promote awareness of issues ranging from diversity to social change. Individuals with disabilities are encouraged to attend all UI-sponsored events. If you are a person with a disability who requires an accommodation in order to participate in any Human Rights Week program, please contact the Office of Student Life in advance at 335-3059.
