The Benjamin L. Hooks Institute for Social Change at the University of Memphis will hold its annual open house Thursday, Sept. 27, from 2 to 4 p.m. in its administrative offices in 204 Scates Hall on the U of M campus.

The event will feature highlights from the April red carpet premiere of Duty of the Hour, a documentary on the late Dr. Benjamin L. Hooks, and information on upcoming calls for Hooks Institute funded research and other Hooks Institute programs.

The open house is free and open to the public, faculty, staff and students. Refreshments will be served. Parking is available in the Zach Curlin garage.

In 1996, University of Memphis officials received approval from the Tennessee Board of Regents to create the Benjamin L. Hooks Institute for Social Change in the College of Arts & Sciences. The mission of the Institute is teaching, studying, and promoting civil rights and social change. The Hooks Institute archives include Hooks’ personal papers, which are housed in the Mississippi Valley Collection in the University’s McWherter Library.
