2021 MLK Day Series: Pursuing the Promised Land

“I may not get there with you. But I want you to know tonight, that we, as a people, will get to the Promised Land.”
These are known as some of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s last words before his assassination in 1968. While we as a people have not yet reached that Promised Land, we continue to work toward it, with Dr. King and Coretta Scott King as our guides and inspiration.
We partnered with Alpha Phi Alpha, Alpha Kappa Alpha, Delta Sigma Theta, Thrivent Financial and HYP NYC for a four-night webinar series to explore the Kings’ radical leadership style and how, 50 years later, they continue to influence social justice in 2021.

 Night One:

 Night Two:
