Days of Dialogue

FEBRUARY 2 - FEBRUARY 7, 2020  

Welcome to the 16th annual Martin Luther King, Jr. Days of Dialogue at the University of Wyoming!

Through this annual week of programming, UW celebrates the continuing impact of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.'s life and ideals. The Martin Luther King Jr. Days of Dialogue (MLK DOD) tradition is intended to expand institutional awareness about issues of diversity and social justice, to foster an inclusive community, and to empower individuals to act in solidarity with marginalized communities.

The Days of Dialogue serve as a renewal of UW’s commitment to making campus a more welcoming and empowering place for people from different backgrounds, heritages, orientations, abilities, and perspectives.

Students, staff, faculty, alumni, and community members are invited to participate in MLK DOD events.

 

2020 Theme: AFROFUTURISM in a RURAL CONTEXT 

What could it mean to imagine rural space with Black individuals at the center instead of at the margins? A refuge from and response to the challenges of our current political moment, Afrofuturist thought is experiencing a renaissance in popular media and Black community spaces around the world.

This Black History Month we will integrate the power of art, science, and radical self-love to create inclusive opportunities for community-care, celebration, and growth on our campus and in the Laramie community.
