Welcome to the 19th 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.

Black Lives Matter: Strides Toward Freedom & Justice

America has a long history of racial injustice and inequality that activists near and far acknowledge and denounce—relentlessly making strides toward intersectional justice and equity. This past summer we witnessed a movement take shape that activated voices from around the world and called for justice for George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Tony McDade, and, unfortunately, many others. Demands for justice rang out from every corner of our nation as activists chanted Black Lives Matter. The conversation continues.

This year we take time to explore the historic Civil Rights Movements—past and present—that have shaped America and analyze our paths toward freedom.
