Walking in the Spirit of Truth: Charting the Pathways to Racial Justice


Location: Auditorium, Hesburgh Center for International Studies/Zoom Webinar

Walk The Walk Week 2023

“Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere” (Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., 1963).

Please join us for an open and honest conversation about where racism is in America and how the pathways towards racial justice are impacted. Our distinguished panelists will discuss how walking the walk toward true racial justice involves addressing the manifold manifestations of racism and systemic racism with conviction and with a resolve toward actions.

A reception will follow in the Hesburgh Center Great Hall.
