Join Dr. Sigma Colón, Assistant Professor of Environmental and Ethnic Studies at Lawrence University, for a talk that explores the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. By tracing King’s imprint on particular spaces, we will discuss streets and urban inequality, the possibilities conjured through radical protest, and how we might approach questions of environmental futurity. 

Q&A through the live-chat function is welcomed and encouraged. A moderator will monitor the chat and direct questions to Professor Colon immediately following her remarks. 

NOTE: All participants will receive a Zoom link upon registering for the event.
