"Changing the World: The Next Step": View "The Long Walk to Freedom" and engage with panel discussion. Jeff Boyd, Adventist Peace Fellowship director, participated in this event by joining the sizeable panel. After watching the short documentary "The Long Walk to Freedom," a number of community members and Andrews University personnel formed what some joked was the largest panel they'd ever witnessed. The hour-long discussion was video recorded and is supposed to be made available on the Andrews University library website. This was one of many campus events celebrating Black History Month.

Additionally, Episode 19 of the Adventist Peace Radio podcast will feature students from Walla Walla University who helped plan this year's Peace Week. Look for it in early March 2018.
