Our keynote speaker is Dr. Tricia Rose, who is currently the Director of the Center for the Studies of Race and Ethnicity in America at Brown University. Her talk "Imagining Justice: Martin L. King, Jr., and African-American Culture of Social Change" will consider the inspiring role African American popular culture has played as a sustaining force against racism as well as a creative fuel for imagining a more just and inclusive society. Rose will share some hallmarks of this legacy, including Martin King's singular contributions, identify challenges we face today and ask what we can do to keep this tradition alive.  Reception and Book Signing to follow her presentation.
