This will be a virtual conference in honor of MLK Day and will include keynote speakers, panel discussions, and high level civic engagement.
2022 MLK Day of Civic Engagement Conference: Keynote presentation "Critical Race Theory and a Country in Crisis" by Dr. Nyle Fort followed by faculty-led panel presentations. Speakers include: Dr. Richard Helldobler and Dr. David E. Jones.
Dr. Fort's presentation addresses recent attacks on Critical Race Theory as the latest example of an age-old American crisis: the denial of our ugly past and the many ways it haunts our present moment. This dynamic talk both explains the continued relevance of race and racism in America while insisting on a more just future for people of all races and identities. Join us for a meaningful way to engage the legacy of Dr. King and leave with a deeper sense of what Critical Race theory offers, including its capacity to help heal our nation’s racial wound. Students will break out into two unique panel presentations each moderated by Dr. Mark Ellis and Dr. Djanna Hill. This experience is coordinated by Mari Rodriguez, Yolany Gonell and Dr. David E. Jones. Credit towards the Civic Engagement Badge, Social Justice Leadership Badge; PLI, and Greek Stars.
