Keynote Talk by Barb Blom '82: "Martin Luther King Jr.: 50 Years Later"
Jan 21 @ 4:00pm

UPDATE: THIS EVENT HAS BEEN POSTPONED DUE TO THE WINTER STORM.

The "Celebration of Community" on Monday, Jan. 21 will conclude with a reception and keynote talk at 4 p.m., to be held in the Art Exhibit Room in Macmillan Hall.

The keynote speaker will be Rev. Barb E. Blom '82, United Church of Christ (Aurora, N.Y.). Her topic is, "Martin Luther King Jr.: 50 Years Later." When Martin Luther King led the country on a journey of self-discovery around civil rights as a moral and religious issue, Americans were largely viewed simply as black or white, rich or poor. Fifty years later we now live in country peopled by many cultures, religions, sexual orientations, different genders and colors. Rev. Blom will consider how MLK's message, which was based upon ancient religious principles, resonates with us today.
