In celebration of Martin Luther King Jr.'s birthday, the Office of Justice, Equity, Diversity & Inclusion at the LBJ School will host award-winning playwright and scholar Lisa B. Thompson to discuss how MLK's political thought and activism continue to bridge gaps between our moral imagination and civic discourse, especially in this time of political polarization. Panelists will discuss the following questions: How can we utilize MLK's model of leadership to confront racial, political, economic and ideological divisions? In what ways are we able to build consensus around the very ideal of democracy in such precarious times? What happens if we fail to meet this political, moral and policy challenge?
