2021 Coretta Scott King Center Legacy Celebration: Sisterhood & Social Justice
Please plan to join us for this event co-hosted by the Coretta Scott King Center for Cultural and Intellectual Freedom and Celebrate! Maya Project
This gathering will celebrate the life and legacy of two American giants, Coretta Scott King (Antioch College Class of 1951) and Maya Angelou, both born in the month of April, and both of whom left the world better thanks to their legacy of civil rights, social justice, and the humanities.
This event will be an acknowledgment of—and celebration of—these women’s lifelong works to address America’s historical racial and social injustices through their art, humanities, civil rights and social justice efforts, and recognition of other Americans whose work closely align with theirs.
This celebration will be followed by discussions on how we utilize Mrs. King and Dr. Angelou’s works as blueprints for addressing America’s social injustices and inequalities; and how we measure present and future progress made by local and national groups.
Minnijean Brown Trickey, one of the Little Rock Nine, who collectively resisted opposition to the desegregation of Little Rock Central High School in 1957, will give the keynote address. She has lifelong experience and commitment to peacemaking, environmental issues, developing youth leadership, antiracism education and training, cross-cultural communication, and gender and social justice advocacy.
Jamee McAdoo and Norel McAdoo, both graduates of Little Rock Central High School, will also perform their poetry for attendees.
