About the Event
According to MLK, societal power sources can always be traced to ideological, economic and political forces. Ibi Davies will lead this conversation tonight (Thursday June 3rd) at 7pm as we explore MLK's thoughts on the subject. Michael Olorunninwo will moderate the evening's proceedings. Words on Marble: "Power is not the white man's birthright; it will not be legislated for us and delivered in neat government packages. It is a social force any group can utilize by accumulating its elements in planned, deliberate campaign to organize it under its own control." - MLK "A true alliance is based upon some self-interest of each component group and a common interest into which they merge. For an alliance to have permanence and loyal commitmment from its various elements, each of them must have a goal from which it benefits and none must have an outlook in basic conflict with the others." - MLK Zoom ID: 846 8446 7973 Password: Book Date: Thursday June 3rd, 2021 Time: 7pm PT/10pm ET
