Tribute to Wangari Maathai

Wednesday, Nov. 9, 2011

A portrait of Kenyan economist Wangari Maathai will join the Architects of Peace collection at Santa Clara University this week.  The unveiling will be Friday, November 11, 2:30 p.m., in the Wiegand Center of the Arts and Sciences Building.

Wangari, a Nobel Peace Prize winner, died in September.  Her photo was taken by Michael Collopy, who has photographed every living Nobel laureate.  He is the creator of the book Architects of Peace, which formed the basis for the Architects of Peace Curriculum, created in conjunction with the Ethics Center.  The curriculum offers essays by each peacemaker and classroom resources for high school and college students.
