MLK Week

Each of us must chart our own journey to learn the history of the American Civil Rights Movement and its connections to present-day racial justice movements. The UW MLK Week workgroup offers these readings and resources to support your movement toward understanding of our shared history and ways to contribute to racial equity work.

We encourage you to engage with these materials within a practice of radical listening — quieting your own thoughts and listening with an open heart in order to more deeply understand the perspective of another person.
