Actor, producer and human rights activist Danny Glover will address the OU community and guests as keynote speaker for the 17th annual Keeper of the Dream awards celebration. Mr. Glover has used his celebrity to work for social change--working with organizations dedicated to the eradication of racism, and the promotion of civil rights, economic justice, gender equality, and community empowerment. He has been involved in raising awareness about anemia, the AIDS crisis in Africa, and in March of 1988, he was appointed by the United Nations Development Program as a goodwill ambassador.
He is a supporter of the TransAfrica Forum, the African-American lobbying organization on Africa and the Caribbean.
