April 4, 2018 marks 50 years since Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s departure. In response to this anniversary, members of the Beloved Community Initiative created the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Jubilee Summit to draw on the collective experiences of more than a dozen national and local organizations and individuals to answer Dr. King, Jr.’s question: Where do we go from here?
The Jubilee Summit consists of a series of strategic online gatherings. Information about each event is provided here. Summit speakers include academic, religious, and community leaders, and everyone is invited to participate.
The Jubilee Summit will begin on Friday, March 23, 10am (EST), with a discussion between Dr. Virgil A. Wood (Co-founder, Jubilee National Collaborative) and Dr. Howard H. Stevenson (Harvard University Business School), on a collaboration they have shared for more than ten years. They will launch the summit by addressing the topic: Does Martin Luther King, Jr. have a living legacy, and if so, where is economic justice?
