King & Faith: Where do we go from here?

January 21, 2018

4:00 pm - 5:30 pm

High school students, winners of an essay/video contest, will talk about the urgent issues that teens face today, moderated by Clarke Weatherspoon, Dean of Equity and Inclusion at Urban School.

This series continues on Sunday, January 28.




About the conversation

“We are now faced with the fact that tomorrow is today. We are confronted with the fierce urgency of now.” Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., Riverside Church, New York City, 4 April 1967

This series is presented in partnership with The Northern California Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Community Foundation with the goal of engaging the wider scholarly, theological, clerical and lay communities in contemporary contemplation of Dr. King, his message and his work. Organized around the MLK2018 theme of the Urgency of Now, the conversations are designed to create a space to critique, analyze and thoughtfully question assumptions about King and faith, King and community and King and society, and to ignite greater dialogue and programs of action that will infuse “where we go from here.”
