January 18, 2021 is Martin Luther King Jr. Day and the day when U-M holds the annual MLK Symposium. This year’s symposium features two speakers, Gloria House, poet, essayist, educator and human rights activist, and Malik Yakini, co-founder and Executive Director of the Detroit Black Community Food Security Network (DBCFSN). All B&F staff can stream the Keynote Address here on January 18, 2021 from 10:00-11:30 AM or watch the event later when the recording is made available (usually within 24 hours).
After the event, please join us for a guided discussion session with your B&F colleagues, facilitated by the B&F Diversity Working Group. You can participate in any of the three sessions. Details can be found on the flyer here and below.
