MLK Revisited: A Legacy of Social Justice and Human Rights
Although many of us are familiar with Martin Luther King’s famous, “I Have a Dream” speech, we may not have had the chance to consider his life and work holistically or to situate it within a larger context of the struggle for social justice. Therefore, to honor his legacy, on January 26, 2022, we invite you to attend our celebration in which BHCC students, faculty, and staff will perform a series of speeches related to the themes of social justice and human rights. Directed and moderated by Dr. Ayshia Stephenson, throughout this event we not only will revisit Martin Luther King’s legacy, but also we hope that this event will cause you to re-envision how we can work together to create a more just, inclusive, and equitable world. This event is sponsored by the Division of Behavioral, Social, Sciences & Global Learning, the Office of College Events and Cultural Planning, the Library and Learning Commons, the Office of Equity, Diversity and Inclusion, AIDE, and the Center for Equity and Cultural Wealth.
