Join the Social Justice Initiative at UIC and community leaders for a symposium and reception in honor of Prexy Nesbitt’s exemplary career of service and activism. As Prexy Nesbitt plans to leave Chicago for California, we are gathering together to celebrate his international work and far reaching impact. 

Chicagoan Prexy Nesbitt has spent more than five decades as an educator, activist, and speaker on Africa, foreign policy, and racism. He was a national and international leader supporting the struggle to end apartheid in South Africa. Closer to home, he worked as an educator, activist and union organizer and served as special assistant to Chicago’s Mayor, the late Harold Washington. He is a beloved educator, international delegation coordinator, and social justice leader who has traveled to Africa over a hundred times and has taught and mentored hundreds of students and activists.
