MLK Commemorative Panel – Pathways to Liberation: Grassroots to Government
January 25 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm
In the first event of UNC Asheville’s 2021 Martin Luther King Jr. Commemoration, a panel of community and local government leaders will discuss pathways to Black liberation in the contexts of electoral politics and grassroots/community organizing and activism. This online event is free and open to everyone at 6 p.m. via Zoom with registration at this link.
- Sandra Kilgore, member, Asheville City Council
- Antanette Mosley, member, Asheville City Council
- London Newton, president, UNC Asheville Student Government Association
- Bryan Thompson, president, Warren Wilson College Black Student Union
Panelists will provide their vision of liberation and how these seemingly oppositional spaces can be used for coalition building to take a holistic and inclusive approach to freedom fighting in and for Black communities.
Please note: UNC Asheville’s MLK Commemoration includes events just for our students and university community. You can find those events here.
