Tufts MLK Celebration: We Don’t Have Much Time

Monday, January 30, 2023 @ 5:30 pm


Tufts University invites the community to its annual Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. celebration, presented in person and also available via livestream. This year’s theme, ” ‘We Don’t Have Much Time:’ Raising Consciousness and Building the Future Now,” is inspired by a series of lectures King offered in 1968 that were published as a book entitled “The Trumpet of Conscience.” The guiding quote reads, “But we do not have much time. The revolutionary spirit is already world-wide. If the anger of the peoples of the world at the injustices of things is to be channeled into a revolution of love and creativity, we must begin now to work, urgently, with all peoples to shape a new world.”

The keynote speaker will be the scholar Dr. Régine Michelle Jean-Charles, who is the Director of Africana Studies, Dean’s Professor of Culture and Social Justice, and Professor of Africana Studies and Women’s, Gender and Sexuality Studies at Northeastern University and  author of the book “Martin Luther King and the Trumpet of Conscience Today.”

This event is free and open to the public; register using the link on the Tufts Chaplaincy website.
