 MLK, Jr. Celebration Events

  • Drew’s on-campus celebration of Dr. King will begin with a lecture by Dr. Traci C. West, the James W. Pearsall Professor of Christian Ethics and African American Studies. We will celebrate the stories of Civil Rights activists like Fannie Lou Hamer, Septima Clark, and Bayard Rustin whose contributions have been essential to civil rights victories since the 1960s. Dr. West’s lecture will lift up narratives and action stories of Civil Rights activists whose contributions are not often mentioned, but whose life work left an indelible mark on the direction of the Civil Rights Movement. As part of the lecture, we will have an interactive small-group workshop using a community organizing curriculum from the original Freedom Schools. The topic of the interactive workshop is “Envisioning True Freedom & Democracy: Material Power, Political Power, and Soul Power.”
