Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King (MLK), Jr. is the first and only private citizen whose birthday is officially commemorated by the U.S. federal government. During his short life - just 39 years old when he was assassinated in 1968 - he led a nonviolent social and political movement against racism. He has become a symbol of the historical and current-day struggle for civil rights and equality in the U.S.
We invite members of the international community to have a basic historical overview about Dr. King’s life and an open dialogue about diversity and inclusion within and outside of the U.S. The conversation will be facilitated by Dr. Robert Gordon from LSA Newnan Academic Advising Center.
The event is co-sponsored by LSA Newnan Academic Advising Center and the International Center.
