The Rev. Barb E. Blom '82, United Church of Christ (Aurora, N.Y.) will join us to help celebrate community and recognize the legacy of Martin Luther King Jr. The keynote takes place on Wednesday, Jan. 30, 2019 at 3:30 p.m. in the Art Exhibit Room, on the third floor of Macmillan Hall.
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.
This event is free and open to the public.
