Khalil Gibran Muhammad, widely known as one of the most influential authorities on racial justice in America, will headline the 2020 MLK Convocation Friday, Jan. 17, at 12:45 p.m. in Tinkham Veale University Center’s Kelvin and Eleanor Smith Foundation Ballroom.

Muhammad is professor of history, race and public policy at Harvard. His scholarship examines the broad intersections of race, democracy, inequality and criminal justice in modern U.S. history. Muhammad will explain how “bias education”—race education—can help individuals and institutions reconcile the past within the present, and move toward greater equity, together.

The keynote talk will be followed by a light reception. This event is free and open to all. Online registration requested.
