MLK Jr. Day Celebration

Join CDIE and the Theater Department in our MLK Day programming on Monday, Jan. 17. We will begin with a welcome and blessing at 10 a.m. outside the Aquinas College Performing Arts Center entrance. The campus silent march and a theatrical performance will follow. CDIE will also host a screening and discussion of "Just Mercy" at 6 p.m. that evening in the Wege Ballroom with complimentary beverages and Mosby's popcorn.

On this MLK Day we hope to engage you in an examination of the carceral state, mass incarceration, and abolition advocacy in the United States today.

With Dr. King's legacy as our guide we have drawn together sources to begin a nuanced discussion of the issue, the impact, and revolutionary solutions. Thank you for joining our exploration.
