Our Shared Humanity: Creating Understanding Through the Principles of MLK.
January 20, 2014, 3:00 p.m.
Currently the Program Coordinator for the Race Relations Institute at Fisk University, Tutu was raised in apartheid South Africa, child of Archbishop Desmond Tutu and Nomalizo Leah Tutu. Combining Dr. King’s dream of the “Beloved Community” with the teachings of a South African proverb, Tutu encourages us to focus on our shared humanity and to concentrate on what we have the power to change in order to build a just world. Co-sponsored with the Black Cultural Center (BCC), CGWC, African and African-American Studies (AAAS), CCC, and the Office of the President. Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Convocation.
