Invocation to Martin Luther King, Jr.: Contemplating the Heart of the Matter
February 22, 2020 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm EST
Trainer: Rose Sackey‐Milligan, PhD, a socio‐cultural anthropologist and the former Director of the Social Justice Program, Center for Contemplative Mind in Society. Rose worked for many years as a Senior Program Oﬃcer at Mass Humanities and was the Academic Director of the Bard College Clemente Course in the Humanities, Springfield, MA.
Class Description: Powerful literature highlighting the quest of Black Americans for justice, equal rights, and citizenship serves as a tool to create open and honest dialogue and new ways of thinking about our nation’s history, the enslavement of Black Americans, and the role racism plays in our national discourse. In this seminar, using contemplative (mindful) attentiveness, participants will communally read and reflect on selected writings by Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Through a facilitated dialogue, the significance of these writings, given the current political and cultural landscape, will be explored.
