Martin Luther King, Jr. Keynote Address:
1:00 PM
Hosted By: Agnes Scott College
The National Day of Racial Healing takes place during Agnes Scott College's Martin Luther King Jr. and Coretta Scott King Commemorative Week of Human Rights and Social Justice. To honor both commemorations, we are hosting Dr. Durryle Brooks as our keynote speaker to speak to our community about Operationalizing Love. Dr. Brooks is an interdisciplinary researcher and scholar-practitioner as well as the founder and CEO of Love and Justice Consulting. During his keynote speech, Dr. Brooks will center Black liberation theology and Black feminist thought as he guides community members through an interrogation of Westernized constructions of love, an analysis of how every day notions of love operate as tools of oppression, and mapping out how to hold each other with loving accountability.
