Portland State's MLK: Living the Legacy Series Jan 15th and 26th

PSU presents two events coming up in January as part of MLK: Living the Legacy series

LASANA HOTEP: The Silence of Our Friends: The Anti-Racist Legacy of Martin Luther King, Jr.

Friday, January 15, 2021


Virtual Event (Zoom)

Martin Luther King, Jr. engaged in direct action, non-violent protests that brought attention to the atrocities being experienced by Black Americans in a segregated apartheid system. His efforts, along with those of many nameless activists, captivated the imagination and provided a blueprint for combating oppression in the United States and abroad.

This multimedia lecture presented by antiracist educator, Lasana Hotep, will take participants on a journey behind the experiences that shaped Dr. King, his contribution to the current Antiracist movement and the global impact of his work to create a more racially just world.
