The Power of Protest

The Power of Protest is a community conversation led by SPEA faculty. They will explore the contrasts between protests in the 1960s and those of today.   Issues to consider: How is Selma different than Black Lives Matter? Does Standing Rock have echoes in King’s time? Do concerns about voting rights now parallel the voter rights drives led by King? Who are the inspirational figures that lead protest now or is there no longer a need for that?   The goal of the event is to involve students, faculty, the campus community, and the Bloomington community in wide-ranging and organic conversations that recognize King’s legacy while advancing understanding of the policy controversies that fuel protests today.
