The Martin Luther King, Jr., Convocation, celebrating its 29th 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, which is sponsored by Loyola University Maryland’s office of equity and inclusion, is a signature event for the University. Past speakers have included Octavia Butler, Spike Lee, Ta-Nehisi Coates, and Roxane Gay.
The convocation is co-sponsored by the office of the president, office of equity and inclusion, Messina, and the Karson Institute for Race, Peace, & Social Justice.
