Announcing Feminist and Writer Dr. Angela Davis as Keynote Speaker for the Annual Seattle University MLK Jr. Celebration: Good Trouble in 2021 

TUESDAY, JANUARY 19 | 6:00 PM – 7:30 PM 

Every January the Seattle University community commemorates the life and legacy of the late Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.  Immersed in culture and social justice, we reflect on Dr. King’s lessons imparted, struggles endured, dreams shared, and the collective responsibility to his call to act in great love.  

This year’s keynote speaker is Dr. Angela Davis. Through her activism and scholarship over many decades, Angela Davis has been deeply involved in movements for social justice around the world. Her work as an educator – both at the university level and in the larger public sphere – has always emphasized the importance of building communities of struggle for economic, racial, and gender justice. 

MLK Jr. Celebration: Good Trouble in 2021 will be a virtual event.  Seattle University community members may register at Eventbrite: 

Please note: registration for this event is required, and the registration window will close on Monday, January 18 at 11:30 PM (Pacific Time). Guests will receive a Zoom link via email prior to the event. 

We strive to ensure that our programming is inclusive for all SU community members. This event will have captioning available. Should you require any additional accommodations for this event.

Moral Mondays at SU: Rest as an Act of Liberation & Resistance

Monday, November 15th
OMA Living Room PAVL 180

The Black community has lived through and continues to live through continuous cycles of exhaustion. Racial battle fatigue and trauma have had significant impacts on the Black community’s ability to rest and prioritize self-care. Rest is required to continue the fight for healing and justice within the #BlackLivesMatter movement.

For any questions or concerns please contact Jaeda Ballard at jballard@seattleu.edu.
