Michael Eric Dyson

Each year, Wake Forest University and Winston-Salem State University collaborate to host a major celebration to honor the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. The theme of this year’s program, “On Common Ground: Where Do We Go From Here?,” highlights the call for the next generation of leaders to help mend historical divides and end systemic injustice.

On Monday, Jan. 22, Michael Eric Dyson will present the 18th Annual Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day keynote speech at 7 p.m. in Wait Chapel. The event is free, but tickets are required. Visit wfuic.eventbrite.com to register.

Note that due to the academic schedule the joint MLK Day celebration is being held Jan. 22 rather than on Jan. 15.
