Martin Luther King, Jr. Celebration 2021

Black Power on Campus is an informative piece that captures the intentional activism of Black students at the University of Illinois following the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Attendees will relive those students’ hopes and dreams for a university that honors the Black student experience, diversity in education, and equal opportunities for all students. Dr. Williamson-Lott presents her text from the standpoint of a historian and author who explores social movements in higher education, but engages in Q&A as a proud alumna who greatly benefited from student activism of yesteryear. This event is open to university students, faculty, and staff who share a passion for supporting young activists.
