MLK Day

Celebrate Martin Luther King Jr.'s legacy with us

Please join us at Luther Seminary on Monday, Jan. 19, as we celebrate Martin Luther King Jr. Day. We will reflect on the significance of Martin Luther King Jr.'s continuing influence around the theme of learning from and living out his legacy.
The opening plenary features Christena Cleveland, author of "Disunity in Christ: Uncovering the Hidden Forces that Keep Us Apart," a 2013 Leadership Journal Book Award winner. Cleveland is a social psychologist, author, speaker and professor with a hopeful passion for overcoming cultural divisions in groups. 
David Preus, bishop emeritus of the American Lutheran Church, will add to the conversation with his recollections of the civil rights movement and the church in the 1960s, including his memories of the 1963 March on Washington, D.C.
Thank you for joining us for this important event! It is free and open to the public. No RSVP is required. Click here to find maps and directions to Luther Seminary.
