The Morning Bishop Theater Playhouse will use one of Dr. Martin Luther King’s lesser-known speeches, “The Other America,” to engage the public in discussions around racial disparities, including in the areas of housing, economic opportunities and human rights. Organizers have prepared discussion guides targeted for different age levels and will utilize experienced facilitators to lead conversations at various community gatherings, including via a radio broadcast.
In this opening session, Prof. McKenya Dilworth of Ivy Tech Community College will explore the goals and objectives of the community discussion series and lead participants in examining the first two pages of the speech.
The discussion will take place via Zoom. Register by clicking the RSVP link above.
Please note that the event begins at 6 p.m. Central Standard Time.
