Ta-Nehisi Coates, critically-acclaimed writer and Atlantic senior editor, will speak on "The Case for Reparations" at Loyola University Maryland on January 19, 2015. Presented by the office of academic affairs, the 22nd Annual Martin Luther King, Jr., Convocation will be at 5 p.m. at Loyola's North Charles Street campus in Reitz Arena.
Update: Due to such positive interest, we have moved the event to Reitz Arena to accommodate all guests in one location. Seating is on a first-come, first-served basis.
Loyola has sponsored a Martin Luther King, Jr., Convocation since 1993. Previous speakers include filmmaker Spike Lee, scholar Michael Eric Dyson, singer Bernice Johnson Reagon, historian Nell Irvin Painter, and writer Octavia Butler. This year's event also contributes to Moral Monday, a call from the AJCU Conference on Diversity and Equity (CDE) for Jesuit colleges and universities across the country to host a campus event reflecting on black life and our social justice mission.
