To reflect on King’s life-long dedication to equality and the mid-century civil rights movement he led, this virtual event features Minneapolis College President Sharon Pierce and Minnesota Department of Human Rights Commissioner Rebecca Lucero. It also showcases winning scholarship entries from 5 students’ essays on King’s work and how it paved the way for overcoming today’s barriers to equity and justice. It connects youth from various communities with the ideologies of this incredible leader whose work is equally as relevant today as it was during the peak of the movement he led.
