Langston Hughes' Dream of Freedom tells a story of many aspects of life-Prayer, Love, Death, and Perseverance. Through it all, these elements play into our constant struggle to be free; where freedom means more than just a word. It is something that needs to be nurtured in all aspects of our lives. Even more importantly these struggles tell us to respect all types of people and ideas. This struggle for freedom cannot be achieved by taking it away from others. This work expresses a need for the respect of diversity through all types of individuals in this world-making the word Freedom, through the bad and good, something to be celebrated.

The 2010 Birke Fine Arts Symposium
Reflecting deep personal interests in cultural and educational activities in the Tri-State area, and recognizing the leadership role of Marshall University, Mrs. Helen Birke and her daughter Julie established, in 1979, an endowed fund in the Marshall University Foundation creating the Birke Fine Arts Symposium.
From its earliest beginnings, the Birke Fine Arts Symposium has offered public performances, lectures, exhibitions and conferences for the university and the community it serves.
This spring, we proudly present Giving Voice: Social Justice and the Arts, the 2010 Marshall University Birke Fine Arts Symposium. A committee of faculty and students; led by Dr. Vicki Stroeher, an associate professor of music, has formulated a stimulating series of events contributing to the broad theme of social justice.
As both a reflection and critique of societal values, the arts have long been at the forefront of the issues of social justice: fairness, freedom and equality.
The 2010 Marshall University Birke Fine Arts Symposium examines the role of the arts in revealing social injustice. Featured events include lectures and performances that explore the connection between social justice and the arts in history, exhibits and performances of new works that address contemporary issues, and workshops and service projects that put social justice into action. All events are free and open to the public.
