Screening: “Why Walk? A Survivor’s Story”

Tuesday, Sept. 5, 2017 / 8 p.m. / I.G. Greer Auditorium

Produced in 2009 to commemorate the 20th anniversary of Appalachian's Walk for Awareness, the video "Why Walk?" provides insight into the incidents that occurred in 1989 that led to the first Walk. Through interviews with founder Barbara Daye and other campus participants, this video recounts the genesis of the Walk and explores the impact that it has had on our campus.
