Join the Africana Center, the President’s Office, the Provost's Office, Tisch College of Civic Life, and the University Chaplaincy, for the annual Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Celebration. This year’s theme, Quest for the Bread of Love: Radical Community Care is based on the 1962 speech, “A Knock at Midnight” wherein Rev. Dr. King proclaims: “When you stop hoping, you’re dying...in the midst of this hopeless men and women reach out for the bread of hope. Then, that is the quest for the bread of love.” The event will orient the Tufts community to the commitment that both Rev. Dr. King and Coretta Scott King shared to deep care of one another, self, and community, in the midst of the quest for justice and transformation. We will welcome local activists and Tufts students to a panel to consider how their labor, rest, and play connect to care and to reflect on this legacy. This is the first public event of three to bring us together as a community to deepen our understanding of the radical work of the Kings, and to continue to shape Tufts into a place of true belonging, equity, and care. Please email University Chaplaincy program manager Nora Bond with any questions or accessibility needs.
