Acting on Dr. King’s Call – Event
January 18 @ 4:30 pm - 5:30 pm
“There are some things in our society, some things in our world, to which we should never be adjusted.” — Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
What did this quote mean during Dr. King’s life, and what does it mean today? How does Dr. King’s message regarding “creative maladjustment” relate to generations of institutional racism faced by African Americans?
Join three local leaders as they explore how Black Minnesotans have refused to normalize injustice and inequality — and who are responding today with action, innovation, and persistence.
This conversation will be moderated by distinguished author, activist, and University of St. Thomas professor Dr. Yohuru Williams, a noted scholar of the civil rights and Black Power movements and HBCU graduate.
This program will be streamed live on Facebook and YouTube.
