Martin Luther King Day Address

The Martin Luther King Day address includes historical and contemporary conversations about race in American society within the framework of civic discourse that inspires all of our public programs. The Martin Luther King Day lecture seeks to illuminate the challenges we have confronted and continue to face with regard to race in American society, as well as to acknowledge the promise and progress that King perceived in the American political principles expressed in the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution.
