Me Too movement founder Tarana Burke will keynote Martin Luther King Jr. Dream Week on Monday, Jan. 27.
Burke will speak on the Chicago campus at noon in Northwestern Pritzker School of Law's Thorne Auditorium, 375 E. Chicago Ave., and at 5 p.m. on the Evanston campus at Pick-Staiger Concert Hall, 50 Arts Circle Dr.
The university will commemorate the life and legacy of King with a series of events Jan. 15-28.
Burke has dedicated more than 25 years of her life to social justice and to laying the groundwork for a movement that was initially created to help women of color who survived sexual abuse and assault. The movement now inspires solidarity, amplifies the voices of thousands of victims of sexual abuse and puts the focus on survivors.
Both events are free and open to the public. To attend the Evanston campus event, online reservations are required; visit "Northwestern University MLK Dream Week 2020 Keynote - Tarana Burke" on Eventbrite .
