It’s official! One month from today the Newman Center, in cooperation with the Newman Student Organization and the Keene State College Office of Multicultural Student Affairs, will host Dr. Boaz Johnson for several events surrounding his work in social justice! While growing up in the slums of New Delhi, Boaz witnessed the atrocities of modern day slavery, human trafficking and the sex trade firsthand as he watched many of his friends be taken into these traps–some to return, some to stay gone forever. Now, he travels the world educating young people about the realities of these social justice issues–and empowering them to do something about it! Come to any of the events listed below and stay tuned for more information about this incredibly charismatic and affecting speaker.
“An Evening of Social Justice with the Slumdog Professor”

“Jesus, the Slumdog Messiah? A Teatime Conversation on Faith and Social Justice”
Join us at the Newman Center Common Room for an intimate and casual conversation on the connection between our Christian faith and our call to social justice. Dr. Boaz Johnson’s journey did more than just lead him from the third world to the first; it also led him through many world faiths in his search for a spiritual explanation of the world’s evils. He found that answer in Jesus, the Slumdog Messiah.
