Penn State Harrisburg hosted its first “freedom seder” April 6 to celebrate the shared commitment of blacks and Jews to freedom from slavery and oppression. Seder is a traditional Passover dinner, marking the Jews' escape from slavery in Egypt. The original freedom seder took place in 1969, on the coincidental occasion of Passover and the one-year commemoration of Martin Luther King's death. Since then, the freedom seder has become a multicultural, interfaith event at colleges and urban centers nationwide.
