A community dinner followed by a lecture given by photojournalist Haider Hamza will kick off Martin Luther King Jr. Week activities on MLK Day, Monday, Jan. 18. The dinner will be held from 5-6:30 p.m. in the Larison Lounge, followed by the lecture at 7:00 p.m., in the Gallery Theatre inside the Elaine Langone Center, with discussion to follow.

Both events are open to the public, however an RSVP to attend the community dinner is required (Note: An RSVP link for this dinner will be posted as soon as it is available).

Hamza's lecture is titled "The Violence of War and Dr. King's Philosophy." An Iraqi scholar and journalist, Hamza will emphasize the essential function of peace and reconciliation while he juxtaposes his photos and stories from war with the teachings of Martin Luther King, Jr.

Martin Luther King Jr. Week at Bucknell University is a week's worth of programming presented by the President's Diversity Council. The theme of this miniseries is The Violence of Hate, and it is intended to engage our community in a conversation about Dr. King's legacy and philosophies, violence, and ways to address this seemingly intractable problem.
