Reclaiming MLK

February 6, 2017 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

MLK Memorial Statue_croppedIn 1967, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. said that “the problems of racial injustice and economic injustice cannot be solved without a radical redistribution of political and economic power.” Join us to look deeper into this often overlooked advocacy by Dr. King on these ideas and thier relevance today, an interactive dialogue with a community of scholars and activists to reclaim the radicalism of Dr. King and reclaim our future.
