This website is a portal for events, projects, and resources associated with Congressman John Lewis, Andrew Aydin, and Nate Powell’s visit to the University of Michigan on September 21, 2017. An ongoing series of Fall 2017 events will bring the Civil Rights Movement to life, inspire critical reflection on social justice advocacy, and spark initiatives that catalyze change.
This event series—a kickoff to the Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Symposium—is co-presented by the International Institute’s Conflict and Peace Initiative and the King-Chavez-Parks Visiting Professors Program as part of the regular Penny Stamps Distinguished Speaker Series. Additional support is provided by the College of Literature, Science, and the Arts; Department of Political Science; Institute for the Humanities; Office of Community-Engaged Academic Learning (CEAL); Rackham Graduate School; and Office of Research.
