Enriching Education: 50 Years Later - Black America Since MLK

50 years later: Black America since MLK is a Brookings event/webcast on Tuesday, April 17, 5:45 p.m. - 7:30 p.m. EDT (with reception to follow) at The Brookings Institution, Falk Auditorium, 1775 Massachusetts Ave, NW, Washington, DC.

The event will feature remarks from Dr. Henry Louis Gates, Jr. followed by a screening of select scenes from the updated PBS special. The new segments offer historic context to guide necessary action on issues of pay disparity, workforce inclusion, and business development. After the screening, a panel of experts will discuss the barriers that still stand in the way of Dr. King’s vision of economic progress as a civil rights imperative for all Americans.
You can register to attend in person here or sign-up for the webcast here. A reception will follow the event for those who can attend in Washington.
