Annual Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Convocation
On Friday, January 13, Brebeuf Jesuit will hold its annual Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Convocation in the West Gym from 10:15-11:25 a.m.
The convocation is a collaboration between the Black Student Union and the Diversity Office, and this year’s program will be a special one. A troupe of actors from PinPoints Theatre of Washington, D.C. will be coming to present a much-acclaimed play called The Meeting, which is premised upon a fictitious encounter between Dr. King and Malcolm X in a hotel room. The play asks the audience to consider the question of how the motivations and approaches to social change of Dr. King and Malcolm X compare with one another and how such a conversation might have unfolded. The production has been performed on countless college campuses and in numerous corporate settings to great acclaim.
This program was made possible with the support of the Mothers Association Enrichment Committee, the Dads Club, and the Alumni Association. Everyone within the school community is invited to attend.
Officers from the Black Student Union will open and close the convocation.
If you have questions about this coming program, contact Freezell Brown, Director of Diversity and Inclusion.
