The Martin Center’s annual Summer Session luncheon will be held at the Carolina Country Club in Raleigh on Thursday, June 13. Dr. Samuel Abrams, a professor of political science at Sarah Lawrence College, will join us as our keynote speaker!

In an October 2018 op-ed piece for The New York Times, Abrams argued that college administrators overwhelmingly align with the left and this ideological imbalance can threaten the free exchange of ideas on campus. A firestorm ensued. Students trashed his office door, harassed him, and demanded the revocation of his tenure. Some faculty members supported the students’ actions.

Please help the Martin Center welcome Dr. Abrams and support his dedication to intellectual diversity and academic freedom.
