The modern Civil Rights Movement brought the legal edifice of Jim Crow-style segregation crumbling down. But in the eyes of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and other movement leaders, the work was far from done. The great evils of racism, poverty, and war continued to wreak havoc here in the United States and across the globe–and more than fifty years later, they still do. Join us for this 30th Valparaiso University MLK Day Celebration on Monday, January 21, 2019, as together we tackle the question gleaned from the old Sunday school and Civil Rights song: if we want justice to roll down like waters and righteousness like a mighty stream, then are there things that everybody ought to know?

Please join us as we celebrate the vision and work of Martin Luther King Jr. Throughout the day we encourage you to make your pledge to actively participate in Social Justice issues within the spirit of Martin Luther King, Jr. by posting “I WILL” at #VALPOMLK.
