Keynote Description
This year’s annual Martin Luther King, Jr. Commemoration will feature two young, Black authors in conversation about how their work is both inspired by and builds on the work of Rev. Dr. King. On Thursday, February 3 at 7pm in Sage Chapel, we will welcome Danté Stewart to campus to speak about his new book, “Shoutin’ in the Fire: An American Epistle.” Danté will be joined by Ithaca-based author and curator of the popular Black Liturgies website Cole Riley, whose book “This Here Flesh: Spirituality, Liberation, and the Stories That Make Us” is due out February 22. Both authors grapple with the legacy of white supremacy in America and invite us to reclaim the liberative and communitarian spiritual practices so central to the work of Dr. King.
