MLK: In His Own Words
Monday, January 18, 2021
Join us as we celebrate what would be Martin Luther King Jr.’s 92nd birthday, as we discuss five of his most famous speeches and his Letter from Birmingham Jail. Upon registration, you will receive a link to videos for the five speeches (ranging from about two minutes to almost an hour in length), and texts for all the materials. We’ll talk about our perception of the most famous quotes outside of, and within, the context of the larger works. We’ll compare the way his words were perceived in the 1960s to today, the impact of his delivery, and the legacy he has left behind.
Register on our website to partake in this event.
