You're invited to join us for the Martin Luther King Jr. Week for Peace, a week of events to commemorate Dr. King's life and legacy and honor all past and present leaders for social change. The MLK Week for Peace is coordinated by the DREAM Team, a coalition of staff and students from Dillard, Loyola, Tulane and Xavier universities.
Events include a Presidential Inauguration Watch Party, Convocation, Panel Discussion, Interfaith Service Step Show, Dream Celebration and Day of Service. Many of the events are free and open to the public, including the convocation on Tuesday, Jan. 22 at 6:30 p.m. in Dillard's Georges Auditorium in the PSB. Titled "The Continuing Need for Affirmative Action in a Diverse American," this panel discussion will feature W. Jelani Cobb of Rutgers University, Silas H. Lee of Xavier, Justice Bernette Johnson of the Louisiana Supreme Court, Bill Quigley of Loyola, and more. It will be moderated by Melissa Harris-Perry of Tulane and MSNBC and be preceded by a light reception at 5:30 p.m.
