MLK Evening of Hope and Resistance

Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was a master orator. He understood that words have power as time-and-time again, he so eloquently used his voice to shed light on injustices. This year, Georgetown University honors Dr. King's legacy of captivating heads, hearts, and hands through an evening of spoken word, poetry, and music highlighting his speech "I’ve Been to the Mountaintop." We hope that through this evening of reflection and artistic expression we can stir imaginations for change and hope for the future. The evening will consist of original spoken word and poetry readings, musical performances from students and organizations, as well as a visual art share. We will also have service activities to support low-income youth, and families. Food will be provided. This event is hosted by the Let Freedom Ring! Initiative of the Office of the President.
