Explore the legacy of racial disparities through the lens of MLK's 1967 speech at Stanford
Event Details

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 session, Sonda Vasquez, president of the Northwest Indiana Chapter of National Hook-Up of Black Women, Inc., will explore the goals and objectives of the community discussion series and lead participants in examining pages three an four of the speech.
