Join Us for an Evening of Reflection
Mason’s celebration of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. will take place on Thursday, January 28, 2021 from 6-8:30pm with an Evening of Reflection hosted by Coalition Building and Diversity Education.
The keynote speaker will be our very own Dr. Gregory Washington, University President.
The 2021 theme, “The Burning House” represents the current times in our nation of social inequality and unrest. Dr. King stated:
“I’ve come upon something that disturbs me deeply. We have fought hard and long for integration, as I believe we should have, and I know we will win, but I have come to believe that we are integrating into a burning house…”
This theme acknowledges that in some spaces, many voices are often silenced, identities overlooked, and racial and social healing are not sought after. Now, more than ever, it is important that we come together while embodying the values of Dr. King, Jr.
George Mason University is committed to diversity excellence, inclusion and to addressing the hard questions of where we are as a people and nation.
This virtual event will also be screened in the Johnson Center Atrium on the Fairfax campus.
