Mr. Shetterly is an American artist best known for his portrait series, "Americans Who Tell the Truth," which celebrates citizens who courageously address issues of social, environmental, and economic fairness. In his lecture, Mr. Shetterly will share the portraits and the impacts of individuals who have fought for civil rights. In the story of his own journey to becoming a social justice activist, the audience will be inspired to consider how they too can take part in improving their communities and enriching the lives of others.
