MLK Community Dinner and Discussion

Families and friends are invited to a community dinner and discussion on Thursday, January 16, 2020, to reflect on the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and the civil rights movement.
The evening event will feature our Dr. King Day Scholar-in-Residence Dr. Traci Parker of the University of Massachusetts at Amherst. Dr. Parker will be joined by four Bryn Mawr alumnae for a panel discussion: Renee Carter ’96, LaToya Hawkins '95, Radhika Prabhu '00, and Hanna Kim '07.  

The conversation for the panel will be grounded by the following quotation from Dr. King:

“In a real sense all life is interrelated. All men are caught in an inescapable network of mutuality, tied in a single garment of destiny. Whatever affects one directly, affects all indirectly. I can never be what I ought to be until you are what you ought to be, and you can never be what you ought to be until I am what I ought to be... This is the interrelated structure of reality.”
― Martin Luther King Jr., Letter from Birmingham Jail

This community event will be held in the Mary Christine "Chris" Hoene '62 Dining Hall. All are invited to dinner beginning at 6 p.m., followed by a panel discussion beginning at 6:30 p.m. Please note that the presentation is most appropriate for adults and students in grades 4-12. Please RSVP to attend.
