'King and Activism'

Wednesday, 18 April, 2018

As part of the bicentennial symposium, “From Selma to St. Louis,” honoring the legacy of the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., the symposium will host an Open Dialogue with the Rev. Starsky Wilson, president and CEO of the Deaconess Foundation, Tef Poe, co-founder of Hands Up United, and Kayla Reed, organizer and civil rights activist from 4 to 5:30 p.m. on Wednesday, April 18, at the Center for Global Citizenship.

The panel dialogue and workshop, “King and Activism,” will discuss how contemporary movements for racial justice, especially within the region and at SLU, draw from, question and advance King's thought and practice.
