Martin Luther King's Dream—Where Are We Now?

Dr. Martin Luther King offered America a compelling vision for social change that transformed our nation. As part of Humphrey School’s celebration of the 50th anniversary of the signing of the Civil Rights Act, we are calling our beloved community together to reflect on Dr. Martin Luther King’s vision and goals, and explore where we stand now. Keynote speaker Professor Nekima Levy-Pounds, civil rights attorney and director of the Community Justice Project at the University of St. Thomas School of Law, will share her views on the status of Dr. Martin Luther King’s "Dream" today.
Her talk will be followed by a discussion with a panel of local civil rights activists and change agents involved in key civil rights and social justice efforts including Julia Freeman, Organizing Apprenticeship Project; Mark Robinson, Empower MSP; Kenneth Eban, Students for Education Reform; Kandace Montgomery, Take Action Minnesota; and Anthony Newby, Neighborhoods Organizing for Change.
