For the 16th consecutive year, NYU will commemorate Dr. King’s visit to NYU in 1961 and honor his legacy by hosting a week-long (Feb. 1–6) schedule of special events.
The themes and questions presented in Dr. King's final book, Where Do We Go From Here: Chaos or Community?, still resonate today, perhaps more than ever. This central question will drive our efforts throughout the week as we examine the current state of our society and imagine a more inclusive future.
The highlight of the week will be the NYU MLK Week University-Wide Event on Thursday, February 4th. Occurring as a virtual event for the first time in NYU MLK Week history, this year’s marquee will center around a conversation between Abby Phillip (Anchor, CNN’s Inside Politics Sunday & Senior Political Correspondent), Elaine Welteroth (Co-host of CBS’ The Talk, New York Times Bestselling Author, Award-Winning Journalist, and Former Editor-in-Chief of Teen Vogue), and Dr. Lisa Coleman.
