Our keynote speaker this year will be Professor Isabelle Gunning of the Southwestern Law School, Los Angeles. Prof. Gunning was motivated to study law in order to support progressive changes in our larger society. At Southwestern, she teaches in the areas of Conflict Resolution; Alternative Dispute Resolution, Evidence and Interviewing, Counseling and Negotiation. She serves as a commissioner on the Los Angeles County Human Relations Commission. She also serves as a board member of the American Civil Liberties Union of Southern California. She is also licensed as a practitioner/spiritual counselor by her home church, the Agape International Spiritual Center.
Dr. Derik Smith of Claremont McKenna College will present a poem by Robert Hayden. Dr. Smith is an Associate Professor in the Department of Literature at Claremont McKenna. His book, Robert Hayden in Verse: New Histories of African American Poetry and the Black Arts Era, was published by the University of Michigan Press in 2018 and is available on Amazon.
Other segments of the program will include a cantorial singer from Temple Menorah, a Muslim teaching, and a performance on the kora (African stringed instrument).
We hope you will join us in this celebration of Dr. Martin Luther King and his quest for justice.
Please invite your friends.
