On April 15, 2014, Kennesaw State University NAACP will host an Affirmative Action Debate on the campus of Kennesaw State University, located at 1000 Chastain Road, Kennesaw, Georgia 30141. The event will take place at 7:30 p.m. in room 1019 of the Social Science Building. The debate will feature respected scholars and professors, followed by a question and answer session.

The 1960's Civil Rights Movement sparked affirmative action, which was intended to provide equal opportunities for minority groups in employment and education. In 1961, President Kennedy first used the term "affirmative action" in an Executive Order that directed government contractors to take "affirmative action to ensure that applicants are employed, and that employees are treated during employment, without regard to their race, creed, color, or national origin."
