Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. (MLK) is the beloved icon of the Civil Rights Movement and for many Americans he is the chief champion of social justice. Too often, the stories and images of MLK are limited to the march on Washington or in Selma, but what about MLK’s more subversive and challenging demonstrations and speeches that are not as widely spoken about? Join Mary-Ann Krisa, Assistant Dean of Students and Director of the First-Year Experience, and Truth Hunter, Assistant Director of BEOP in exploring non-mainstream images of MLK and draw key lessons from his life. This social justice workshop will assist participants with cultivating leadership skills rooted in authenticity and self-reflection.
