“Reclaiming Dr. King’s Legacy of Radical Social Justice” - A Panel Discussion (1/16/23)
Next week marks an important moment nationwide as we reflect on the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and the critical ideological perspectives he left behind to guide us in our work toward social change. King, after all, was not just a proponent of non-violent direct action but also a strategist for widespread socio-political reform, and we continue to lean on his lived values as well as his example in the fight for racial equity today. Recognizing that there is much we still have to learn from Dr. King’s legacy of radical social justice, particularly as it relates to the discriminatory treatment of racially minoritized communities, Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated (Rho Theta Omega Chapter) and the National Council of Negro Women (Delaware Valley Section) have organized a panel discussion titled, "Reclaiming Dr. King's Legacy of Radical Social Justice," for Monday, January 16, 2023, from 4:30 to 5:30 PM ET.
Panelists for this exciting event will include Dr. Christopher Allen Varlack (Executive Director of the Center for Antiracist Scholarship, Advocacy and Action at Arcadia University), Dr. Latisha Forster Scott (Owner of Fusion Fit and Well, LLC and Member of the National Social Justice Committee of NCNW), Mr. Jordan Harris (Pennsylvania State Representative and Former Chairman of the Pennsylvania Legislative Black Caucus), Akua Wilson (Howard Law School Student) and Dr. Doreen Loury (Founding Executive Director of the Center for Antiracist Scholarship, Advocacy and Action and Co-Chair of the National Social Justice Committee of NCNW). Please consider joining us for this important conversation.
