The University of Michigan will host the 34th annual Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Symposium on Monday, January 20, 2020 beginning at 10 a.m. at Hill Auditorium.

This year’s theme, “The (Mis)Education of US,” will feature keynote speaker Angela Davis, educator, political activist, and author. Dr. Davis is known for her work surrounding social, economic, racial, and gender justice.

Since 1986, the University of Michigan has hosted its annual Martin Luther King Jr.
Symposium, one of the largest celebrations by colleges and universities in the nation.

The theme is composed by faculty, staff and students across campus based on its relevance to current social justice issues and the teachings of Martin Luther King Jr.

This year’s theme, “The (Mis)Education of US,” acknowledges that although we live in a diverse society, we have not been adequately educated on who we are and how we can best learn, live and prosper together.

The Keynote lecture is coordinated by the Office of Academic Multicultural Initiatives
under the Office of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion and co-sponsored by the Stephen M. Ross School of Business with support from the William K. McInally Memorial Lecture Fund, and Michigan Athletics.

The U-M MLK symposium is open to the University community and the general public. For those who are unable to attend in person, they are encouraged to watch the event online or as part of a group watch party by visiting mlksymposium.umich.edu
