Emmanuel College's Catherine McLaughlin Hakim Lecture Series presents "Finding Peace and Justice in Southie," a lecture from American Book Award winner Michael Patrick MacDonald, author of "All Souls: A Family Story From Southie" and "Easter Rising: A Memoir of Roots and Rebellion."
This annual lecture series was established by Dr. Raymond Hakim in honor of his late wife, Catherine McLaughlin Hakim '70. A sociology major at Emmanuel, Catherine studied under longtime sociology professor Sister Marie Augusta Neal, SND, who left an especially indelible mark on her student experience. The lecture series commemorates Catherine's life, her fondness for Emmanuel, and the relationships she formed at the College and continued to maintain throughout her life. The Catherine McLaughlin Hakim Lecture Series is sponsored by the Department of Sociology. Lectures focus on issues of sociology, social justice and public policy on the local, national and international levels. Register for the lecture here: emmanuel.edu/HakimLecture
