Philosophy major Beau Revlett has received the John Lewis Fellowship from Humanity in Action.
The fellowship brings together international groups of college students and recent graduates to explore national histories of discrimination and resistance — including the political foundations of racial hierarchies, anti-Semitism, Islamophobia and colonial domination — as they affect different minority groups today. The fellowship seeks to educate, connect and inspire the world's future leaders in the fields of human rights and social justice.
Revlett will join a group focusing on issues of diversity within the United States, with a particular emphases on Atlanta, the American South and the Civil Rights Movement. As part of this program, fellows will explore America’s history of diversity, immigration and civil rights along with present-day tensions related to minorities across the country. Key areas of inquiry include race and racism, immigration, national identity, Native American issues and the relationship between civil rights and human rights.
