The Fierce Urgency of Now – What is Y(our) Story?

This year's MLK Symposium theme, “The Fierce Urgency of Now”, asks each of us to “...claim ownership of the challenges we face...” We are reminded that, “...much work still needs to be done to heal the wounds of our past, and resolve the injustices of our present. The Fierce Urgency of Now compels us to not only act but to also acknowledge that the absence of action and the continuation of silence, serves to bring us deeper into the shadows of division.”

W​e invite members of the University community to share their brief (2-4 minute) stories through written or spoken word, performance pieces, poems, art, music, or song.

We encourage you to connect your story to the theme of “The Fierce Urgency of Now” and tell us of a time, situation or event that made you conscious of the need or desire to act.

* What is or has been your inspiration?
* What did you do, wish you had done or are you doing?
* How have you been discouraged from acting as a result of your experience?

This is an opportunity to tell your story, among supportive listeners, because your stories matter!
