Structural Racism Resource Base: Campus Events

January 20, 2023

As we begin our extended celebration of Dr. King’s birthday, please reflect on Birmingham, Alabama as a pivotal moment in the contemporary Civil Rights Movement and in the life of Dr. King with a re-reading of his “ Letter from a Birmingham Jail ” and joining us on Friday, January 20, 2023, on the fifth floor of Kindlon from 12:00 – 3:00, for a viewing of the Spike Lee film, “ Four Little Girls.” It will be followed by a discussion with our new assistant professor of African American Studies , Dr. Theodore Foster.

The event is co-sponsored by the Benedictine University Faculty/ Staff Workshop on Structural Racism, the Black Student Organization, and the Benedictine University Library. This is an opportunity for students, faculty, and staff to come together as a community to reflect on the life of Dr. King and his unfinished work.
