Hidden Histories: Dr. MLK Jr.

Featuring: Dr. Omar Dphrepaulezz

This event will explore the way narratives of MLK Jr are being utilized in the current dominant narrative of history. The history we have been taught has a direct impact on how we interact with one another and how we continue intercultural relations in the future. The way we view the past influences how we view ourselves and others and this series hopes to help tell the hidden histories that are often not taught.
