Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s “The Other America” Discussion Program
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, Lanette Gonzalez and McKenya Dilworth, professors at Ivy Tech Valparaiso, will lead participants in examining the speech, with the support of the college’s diversity lead, Katherine Pantinas.

The discussion will take place via Zoom. Register by clicking the RSVP link above. Another option is to join via Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/ivytechvalpo. Please note that the event begins at 2 p.m. Central Standard Time. 

This program received support from an Indiana Humanities INcommon Grant.
