Nikole Hannah-Jones, the award-winning creator of the New York Times Magazine’s “The 1619 Project,” about the history and lasting legacy of American slavery, will headline SUNY Oswego’s 32nd annual MLK Celebration. Hannah-Jones won the Pulitzer Prize for commentary for her powerful introductory essay to The 1619 Project.
Anchored by “A Conversation on Justice, Race and Healing” featuring Hannah-Jones, this year’s MLK Celebration will be a free virtual event, and will include audience Q&A following her talk. Readings and student musical performances will again be part of the celebration of the Civil Rights leader’s life, lessons and legacies during Black History Month.
