Father Bryan Massingale, one of the most distinguished voices in theological and social ethics, will deliver Loyola University Maryland's annual Martin Luther King, Jr., Convocation address on Wednesday, January 18, 2023, at 6:30 p.m. in McGuire Hall. "Racial Justice Then and Now: Honoring the Past, While Looking to the Future" will be moderated by Karsonya Wise Whitehead, Ph.D., founding director of the Karson Institute for Race, Peace & Social Justice, and associate professor of communication and African and African American Studies at Loyola.

Father Massingale will offer new perspectives on the historical and contemporary challenges of racial justice and explore how education can be used to combat racism and promote reconciliation and justice.

The Martin Luther King, Jr., Convocation, celebrating its 30th year, is an occasion for Loyola and the Baltimore community to launch the spring semester and the New Year by coming together for shared inquiry into the issues of social justice, politics, spirituality, and the legacies of race and racial justice in America.

The convocation is co-sponsored by the office of the president, the office of equity and inclusion, Messina, the Karson Institute for Race, Peace, & Social Justice, and African and African American Studies.

The convocation will also be live-streamed via YouTube, and closed captioning will be provided. Please log into the event using the following link:
